is pure nonsense, as for instance: "asignlfi.

Lands" lnce, by the Statute, two out of the
three Commissioners must be trom the Cab
inet and therefore need not "nod" to any
body on the subject, either significantly or
insignificantly; and, besides, they are admin
istering an estate which has no more to do
with any individual planter, than his own
estate has to do with the Commissioners.
Where has a Boundary Commissioner jet sat
to hear and decide any case! Tbe former
Sole Commissioner, Judge Robertson, sat
on two, in which the same Commission
ers of Crown Lands were actual parties
to the record. How, then, docs any man
presume to write, and any paper pre
sume to publish, that the Commissioners, or
any of them, have been influenced adversely
to any claimant, by corrupt or unworthy mo
tives or solicitations of anyone much less
third parties! Where Is the planter who
will say that thc District Magistrate of his
district has been directed, advised, or Influ
enced adversely to him or his interests !
What planter, or other man of business, has
been litigant in the Supreme Court and has
said, or will say, or has had cause to say, that
the Judges, or any of them, have been, or
could.be, influenced In their decision by any
intimation that thc litigant is unfriendly to a
Minister orall of them with the expression
"We mnst support the Government, gentle
men!" But, fellow citizens, that paper,
which It is claimed merits and receives your
liberal support, does not hesitate to sap your
prosperity by seeking to spread the idea that
justice Is insecure, and even yonr courts are
venal though the contrary Is pre-eminently
the fact ! Tears, position, a long life of use
fulness, are no protection from the slanders
of a penny-a-liner, whose sole idea is to earn
a few a very few dollars, by this dirty
Ton have all heard the story of the crowd
in Dublin, when one cried out, "Don't nail
that man's ears to the pump." The crowd,
being ripe for such things, took the hint
though they had not thought of it before, and
thc man's ears were called to the pump So
this good citizen proceeds on the same prin
ciple, with hints that we have seen, and heard
before, from the same and similar sources,
that domestic violence would be desirable.
Hear him, and see thc counsels which he,
as well as some others, (who may not be
spoken of, on account of the sacredness of
their office, and their immense ecclesiastical
elevation,) see fit to give:
" Physical demonstration is tbe onlv cor
rector of evils In an absolutism. This is not
to be expected here. The native population
are too listless and too much under the su
perstitions of old, to appreciate the evil. The
foreigners mainly come here to make money,
and only care for that"
The remark made about the native popu
lation is very significant, and if they should
awake from their lisUessness, one day, it
would not be surprising if it were the worse
for those who thus outrage a peaceful and
I have thought it best to address this to the
public, rather than to tbe Editor of the Ga
zette, and hope that he will give it an inser
Ed. Remakes. Probably it may 6afely be
asserted that the calumnies commented on
by our correspondent were "invented by the
Mb. Editor. Probably no proposition
has been made, within the memory of the
"oldest inhabitant" so fraught with the des
tinies of this kingdom and the "rest of man
kind," so calculated to awaken the most
lethargic, or to "add new vigor to this de
caying people," as that of your wise neigh
bor when he says in his last issue, in rela
tion to Inter-Island steam, that "This whole
question, reduced to a focus, amounts to
this shall we have steam or not!" I sup
pose that he means to be understood, that
when the rays of thc wonderful light which
he has thrown upon the subject, are concen
trated, with the assistance of a powerful
lens, an admiring world will at once be able
to perceive, that we ore ritAer to Aare, or not
to hare" Inter-Island steam!" Sow, I defy
any other man, to so satisfactorily settle so
important a question in so few words.
With him, it is inspiration and possible, with
others, it would be darkness,and, perhaps, im
possible. He also proves, in the same
article, beyond a reasonable doubt, that
we should at once offer $25,0001 thought
my offer of 40,000 was, if anything,
too liberal to the .Xorth Paciflc Trans
portation Company to indnce that cor
poration to put on suitable Inter-Island
steamers, prorlded of course, that they will
consent to perform the service with vessels
under the American flag, which they would
probably consent to do. Only a few ques
tions have suggested themselves to my mind,
whlh would have tbe effect to make me
hesitate in giving my " unmitigated" support
to the above proposition. Among the most
simple of these questions are the following:
Firstly: If a "responsible Ministry" were to
permit vessels under a foreign flag to engage
in the coasting trade, would there not be dan
ger that the ghost of the Constitution of
1S52, outraged beyond endurance at such a
palpable disregard for a plain and explicit
lax, might arise and hurl them from the
proud positions they cow occupy ! Second
ly: How would it work in case this Gov
ernment should demand the use of one of
said steamers and be refused, and then take
her by force, and use her for the purpose re
quired, might'et the bin be heavier than the
service done would seem to deservend who
would be likely to attend to the collection,
and who would be the judge of the necessity
of such use by Government! Thirdly:
Tour brilliant friend talks thus: "In fact
tbe contract should contain such a provision
as is made by the American and British Gov
ernments with their subsidized steamers."
Please sir, mark the word "their." Are
there now any British steamers, subsidized
by the American Government as coasters, or
American steamers, subsidized by the Brit
ish Government,? coasters, "which are bound
upon demand, to enter the service of the na
tion by which they are subsidized. And if
there are any each incase of a "little dif-
take, and what would become or them IT
they happened to be caught taking the
wrong side !
Don't you answer these questions Mr. Ed
itor. I want thc JoVerfiscr to do so, out of
that rare and priceless copy or Puffcndort
Sever having spoken one single word, with
any Minister, or other official of this Govern
ment, about steam, I am unable to give the
Ministerial views on the question; but let ns
hope that they are as sound and as "broad
and national" as those of the advocates of
foreign subsidy. Tours, Stxav.
P. S. If another and greater "ring" has
"subsidized" any one, to advocate the little
scheme above referred to, St is to be hoped
that they have made the thing sufficiently
remunerative to warrant a man ln making
himself supremely rediculous. 8.
Me. Editor: I venture to trouble you
with a few reflections, which have been sug
gested to my mind by recent events, In re
gard to the character of the responsibility
resting upon those who undertake the con
duct of a newspaper In the Hawaiian lan
guage There arc, I hold, few positions ln
this country, of more grave and solemn res
ponsibility than that of one who undertakes,
from week to week, to Instruct and amuse
this people through the medium of the press.
There is no calling lu which, he who under
takes It is required to be possessed of a
calmer, or more matured judgment, a wider
phUanthrophy, or a greater amount of that
charity, which is inclined to look at the
actions of all men from the most favorable
point of view. The great want of books of
a general character, in his own language,
renders the Hawaiian (who is unable to read
foreign books and papers) entirely depen
dent upon his newspaper, not only for a
Knowledge of the progress of events, but for
guidance in the great moral and political
questions of the day. The confiding nature I
of the Hawaiian, makes him particularly sus- j
ceptible to thc views of those to whom he j
looks as his teachers. It Is therefore a thing
much to be regretted, If there should be any
professed teachers of this people, who.in their
papers, are rabid, bitter, and denunciatory
towards any. There seem to be some people,
wbo, although they must be aware, that
honest men of like intelligence, have dis
agreed on almost every subject that has
arisen since the world commenced are per
fectly Incapable of comprehending how any
one can disagree with (Aem, and be honest
So man can hotutUg feel this way, unless
he is perfectly satisfied that in himself Is the
very sum of human wisdom and perfection;
and, I mnst say that a man wbo leels thus,
must be a happy man, and has a perfect right
to be proud of himself. A majority of re
flecting people are very apt to mistrust that
those who appear to be filled with this belief
in their own Infallibility, are not alto
gether sincere; and not unfrequently, attri
bute designing and wicked motives, where
the utmost professions of the purest motives,
are made. Without attempting to discuss,
as to whether this mistrust is well founded,
I venture to make the assertion that people
such as these, are not the proper persons to
conduct a native Hawaiian newspaper nor
for that matter, any other: because they do
not elevate, and are not capable of elevating j
and enlightening the people, but on the con-'
trary, are the persons who are best calcnlat-1
ed to do the very reverse. If they, assuming
to occupy the very highest moral, religious
and political ground, denounce those who do
not see things exactly as they do, as dis
honest knaves or incompetent blockheads,
they are teaching the people to become in
tolerant ; besides, they are telling them what
in ninety-nine cases oct of well, we'll
say niacfy-nwe, Is not true. If they continu
ally tell the people that they are down-trodden
and oppressed, when the people are not
down-trodden and oppressed; the people,
you know, will after a time lose faith in
their advisers and friends, and there will
cornea time when these advisers and friends i
of the people, will be utterly Incapable of do
ing the dear, down-trodden people any more
good. Indeed, this reflection would make
me quite inconsolable, were it not for the
fict that, at that time and thereafter, they
will not be able to do the people any more
harm. This last reflection goes a great way
towards fully reconciling me to the harrow
ing possibility of the first ; indeed I am so
far reconciled by it, as to be fully of the
opinion that the sooner that time comes the
better for all concerned particularly for Oie
The following extract from the report to
the A. B. C. F. M., may not have met the
eyes of all our readers, and therefore we give
it the benefit of our circulation.
The persistent efforts and inficenee of the
Papacy, and of Reformed Catholics in hosti
lity to the labors and counsels of the mission
aries, are a perpetual hindrance to their work.
The self-denying and benevolent labor of
years, and the expenditure of hundreds of
thousands of dollars, with their manifest good
and wide-spread results, have been wholly
ignored, disregarded, and as far as practicable
circumvented and destroyed, by interfering
emissaries from European Christian communi
ties. Still, the addion of 27 new members
to the native churches, and contributions from
native members of near 30,000 dollars, to-
gttner witn tne almost entire support of their
own churches, and the sending of their own
missionaries to the islands beyond them,
show their deeply rooted. Evangelical piety,
and the presence and blessing of God's spirit
This whole mission and its fruits, gave the
richest encouragement to the American Church.
and to the Christianity of the world, to com
mit itself, promptly and unfalterinclr. to the
great work of converting all the nations of
ine eartn to tne religion of the Lord Jesus
It is a subject of regret that our Congrega
tionalist and Presbyterian friends think that
the work of their co-laborers of other denomi
nations is to prejudicial, and that the mani
fest good of then own labors Is " practically
circumvented and destroyed " by the hostile
efforts of the others. But others, disinterested
and impartial, think taat the seal of our
friends causes them to exaggerate the hind.
ranee to their work from the sources mention
ed. There is room enough for all. Neither
of the two denominations mentioned lias the
smallest hostility to tbe labors and counsels
of the Hawaiian Evangelical Association, nor
wish to " destroy or circumvent" the manifest
good and wide spread results of their benevo
lent labors. They undoubtedly differ very
strongly on polemical subjects. but most
clearly, one diSers as much from the other as
the other from the one. Inasmuch as religious
tenets and theories are not demonstrable, those
esgaged in pressing different Tiewt, too fre
quently become so identified with them, as to
think that any who differ from them, "hin
der" their work. and. it is to be honed, that
the idea that any religious denomination is
" hostile" to the efforts of the others, or ii
interfering" to crevent th-rra from doin-.
good, may .disappear, and that all will work

FROM OCS REGULAR OOKBESrOSDEST.
Sax FBAsasco, March as, 1SB9.
The Paclfle Railroad.
Only about one hundred miles of track
now remains to be laid, and the Continental
Railroad will be completed. The Central
Pacific is finished to within about forty miles
of Monument Point or the north end of .Salt
Lake, and the Union Pacific has about sixty
miles ot tract to lay to reach the same point
The Central Pacific is laying from three to
four miles a day, and has Its grading com
pleted to Monument Point; this gap ts
almost certain to be closed by the flrst of
May, some say by the middle of April.
Some parts or the Union Pacific Road are
understood to be very badly constructed.
A correspondent who has lately been over
the road writes as follows :
As to the construction or the Pacific Rail
road, It Is not done according to contract
from Bryan westward: tbe grade Is low. in
some places made ot chunks or (rozen dirt.
wucn win soften Into mush In the spring;
thc culverts and bridges are all or wood,
Tbe obstacles In the construction or this
road have been prodigious, and the tempta
tion to construct portions or the road in a
temporary manner have been very great
One or the very first things President Grant
did, after stepping into office, was to remove
two of the three Commissioners or the Union
Pacific Railroad. These men had undoubt
edly been unfaithful to the trust reposed in
tbera, and they were removed at once. They J
were too ready to accept the railroad. As
soon as a ribbon section of twenty miles was
run out, it was promptly accepted and the
government subsidy paid. President Grant
thought it best that the Railroad Company
should not own the Commissioners.
It is said that "emigrant trains" will be
placed ou thc road dally, semi-weekly, or
weekly, as tbe demand may require, and
passengers by these trains will be brought at
ranch cheaper rates than ever were heard of
before. Emigrant passage tickets, will be
sold at a price not exceeding fifty dollars,
trom .Neir iorK to any point in lamurnia.
The rates of fare on the overland roads arc
two and a half cents a mile, between Sew
Tork and Chicago, five cents a mile on thc
Union, and ten cents a mile, gold, on thc
Central. At these figures, and reducing thc
charges through to gold rates, we get the
following approximate estimates or tbe cost
of a first-class through ticket:
Sew Tort to Chicico 900 SIS 75
Chicago tc Omaha 1 44 17 41
Omaha to Salt Lata 1,070 40 13
Salt Lake to San Francisco. 77 j 77 SO
Total! S,29 353 91
In the statement of distances, six miles
should be added for ferriage from Oakland
to San Francisco, making' a total of 3,905
The Central Pacific Company promises to
reduce its rate of fare in Jnly next and
this would reduce the charge on the Central
to gold, and the cos! of a through
trip to $115.25. Tbe cost of meals and other
incidental expenses along the road need not
cost more than S25, for a trip consuming
onlv six to eight days.
Tbe final completion of this great road
will be a distinguished event the twenty
years dream of California will be realized,
and a new era of rapid development and sub
stantial prosperity will begin.

to have taken from the various points, within
their field or operations, during 1SC0 and 1S67,
137,943 fur seals, 10.S35 foxes, 13,476 beavers,
7,970 muskraU, 3,905 sea otters, 2,703 land
otters. 6,733 martins, 55S lynx, and 226 bears ;
the skins and oil of all estimated at $1,400,
000. The fur trade Is the only present wealth
of the country, and 6hould be carefully
guarded. Under proper restrictions, they
see no good reason why the fur trade may
not be thrown open to all The fnr trade is
the key to the commerce of the country, and
they think It nuwise and unfair to allow
one or more companies to have a monopoly.
They recommend that a Territorial Govern
ment be organized at an early day.
