May 25th, 1SC9.J
On 'Wednesday evening, April 21st, at
10 o'clock, P. M., the question was put
to tbe Senate, to take op the Hawaiian
Treaty, and the Senate declined to do eo.
by a vote of twenty-four to twenty-two.
The engrossing subject, during the week,
had been nominations and it was not
understood that the vote not to take up
wonld be a finality for that session, but it
so turned out. It had been thought by
most, that it was nearly sure of ratifica
tion, and cur advices have been hopeful.
Every one speaks in the highest com
mendation of the Hon. J. Mott Smith ;
and he has acquitted himself of his oner
ous duties, not only with credit to himself,
but to tLe Government. It was thought,
on the whole, to be reasonably certain,
that had not the anxiety of Senators to
get away, and their disinclination to risk
the prolonging of the session, for several
days prevented the taking up of the
Treaty it would have been ratified. The
fact that there were twenty-two against
postponement, under the circumstances,
shows that it had strong friends. Origi
nally, the time within which ratification
was to be exchanged was eighteen months,
Secretary Seward, however, agreed with
Air. Harris, to extend it to July 1C, next.
Dr. Smith has authority to further extend
this time, and if the present administra
tion is favorable to it, will do so.
As we have said before plain state
ments of facts are placed before the pub
lic, in this paper, as a matter of duty, with
tbe hope but with small expectation of
preventing the recurrence of misrepre
sentation on the part of those who make
a trade of it. Air. George Henderson, of
Auckland, will probably be much surprised,
to hear that his visit to this country, is a
matter of eo much importance as it is now
magnified to be. We had thought that
the full and explicit statement, regarding
the interview of Mr. Henderson, with
gentlemen at the Government-House,
might, possibly, have been sufficient. But
our neighbor says, in bis last issue, in
effect, that he made a passage with that
gentleman to San Francisco, in Xovember
last, and had frequent conversations with
him, and therefore will go more largely
into details. Xow it would be, to most
people, a novel proposition, that because a
man made a passage with another, there
fore, he knew more about a conversation
on shore than those who were present at
it ; and it is scarcely a matter of question,
under all the circumstances, who is most
likely to have understood, remembered,
and reported it most accurately.
Let us compare the expressions of our
cotemporary, in this respect, as made on
May 15th, with those made on May 22nd.
On May 15th, it is said :
"Last fall. Mr. Geonre Henderson. Junior
Partner, -visited this port
expbesslt to SECURE from the Hawaiian
Government the privilege to Introduce and
run inter-island steamers, nndera contract
for a term of years."
On May 22nd :
" Mr. Henderson arrived here In the Idaho
Nov. S, having come from San Francisco
MiixLr If not expressly to seek the privi
lege ot establishing an inter-island steam
What Mr. Henderson's motives were,
in coming here whether " expressly to se
cure," or " mainly to seek," the contract
can be known only to himself; but he said
he came to see his relatives, and communi
cated no different idea to anyone, except
his confidential friend, the Publisher of the
P, C Advertiser. In point of fact, he had
never heard of the proposed subsidy
until after be had embarked on board of
the IdaJio, and was on his passage down.
Jl passenger of great consideration in this
community, whose name we withhold, be
cause it is not necessary to have him
dragged in the mud, anthorizes us to make
this statement That he made the trip fbox
San Francisco hither, with Mr. H. That
on the passage down, Mr. H. stated that
he was coming down here to see bis rela
tives, having & tew weeks to spare in San
Francisco, and intended to return on the
next trip of the vessel. The subject of
steam navigation was frequently introduced
by those passengers, who are residents
here, and not by Mr. Henderson; and if
any one could judge by his conversation,
and the incidents pertaining toit.be would
most unhesitatingly say, that Mr. Hender
son had never heard of any intention, on
the part of thU Government, to offer any
contract to run inter-island steamers, be
fore starting from San Francisco.
May 15th, it is written :
"After several confercnii-! with the Mln
I istry, or perhaps the Mini&i. Interior, no
j arrangement could be agreed on."
And on May 22nd :
"That he had OXE conference and wonld
have had iioiiE, 11 the Ministers had signified
a desire to have them, or offered any Induce
ment.'" There was certainly no reason why
"Ministers," or anybody else, should de
sire more conferences, when they had both
given and received all tbe information that
could be imparted. But the idea in the
first publication is, that several conferences
had been had, with an effort, on the part of
Mr. Henderson, to come to " an arrange
ment' in order to ' secure the privilege,"
which several conferences, in the next
issue, dwindle into one interview, in which
no arrangement was proposed, but merely
information sought. And further, on this
subject of the interviews, which, in his
issue of May 15th, had been several on
May 22nd, we have from tbe same source :
" He (Mr. Henderson,) went to the Government-House
to see the Ministers relative
to the project. Not finding them in, a rela
tive of his met Mr. Harris oo Tuesday,
and Inquired when Mr. Henderson might
have an interview' with him on steam.
The Minister appointed a certain hour the
next day, (Wednesday,) at which time he
found two of them in, and bad the desired
interview. Again he called on the Thursday
following, and obtained a copy of tbe laws.
This makes three times that be called, and if
the Ministers did not see him but once, as
stated, it was probably because they w ere so
taken up with private" business speculations
as to be unable to attend to official duties."
He called once, not fiuding the
person called on, got an appointment,
which was duly kept, and subsequently
he called on the Chief Clerk of an office,
to get a copy of the lans, (which he got)
and, therefore, the statement is published
that he had several interviews, in which no
arrangement could be agreed upon not
because be did have several interviews, or
sought more than one, but because if
Ministers had signified a desire to have
more, more might have been bad.
Again. On May 15th, it is said :
" Mr. Henderson, as we understood him,
was keadt to contract to do the service,
lor five or more years, for the subsidy voted
by the Legislature."
But again, on May22nd :
"Mr. Henderson could not, of course,
'make any binding obligation,' without
the consent of his partners, even had the
Ministers suggested such a course."
Tbe strength of this legal proposition,
that one partner can not bind his co
partners, in a contract, in tbe course of
their business, without their express con
sent, we have nothing to do with. The
contrast of the two statements is what we
have to put before our readers. First, he
was ready to contract, and then be could
not, or cocr-sn, make any binding obliga
tion. Xow, if be could not make any
binding obligation, how could he be ready
" He was not told unconditional!! that If
be should furnish a staunch, sea-worthy ves
sel, which would do the service as provided,
he could have the contract: but he was told
that if no olArr parties were accepted before he
amxxa, ae mtgnt nave it. mat maces a Ten

ing an outlay of from fifty to one hundred
thousand dollars; and no wise merchant

stances." P. C. Adv., May '.2nd.
lie was not told "that if no other
parties were accepted before he arrived, he
should have it," (the contract); but he was
told, that if no other parties were accepted
before a letter should arrive from bis
Firm, proposing that they would furnish
staunch, sea-worthy vessels, which would
perform the Eervice as called for by the
law, he shonld have the contract.

The writer of this notice met him in
Boston, a year and a half ago, and a more
hale and blithe old gentleman could not
be found. He always took the greatest
interest in everything here, and, indeed,
never dissolved his connections with the
islands; always spoke of Kamehameba
III, and tbe Chiefs of his time, with al
most affectionate regard. He dwelt on
having entertained the young Princes, as
he called them, meaning his late Majesty
Kamehameha TY, and his present Majes
ty, at his New England home, as an inci
dent, tbe memory of which was most de
lightful to him. He would frequently
please himself, and others, by commencing
to talk Hawaiian, to show that, notwith
standing so many years absence, the lan
guage was as familiar to his tongue as ever.
In fact all his memories and his whole
heart were entwined with this countiy.

that he is not a Missionary at all nor do I
believe him to be a preacher but one who
has impudently assumed the name of Mis
sionary. But whoever he is, have we not
the benefit of bis wonderful knowledge of
the things of this world, his great love of
truth, and bis devotion to the cause of vir
tue? Indeed we have. Tet ungrateful beings
that we are, we will not heed his warnings ;
we will not listen to the words of wisdom
which fall from his lips, or glide from his
pen, but persevere in looking at things for
ourselves, and governing our actions, accord
ing to our own consciences, instead of takin:
him for our guide, philosopher and friend.
As though this were not enough, there are
occasions when we even doubt his inspira
tion, and think that the wisdom that he so
freely dispenses is entirely earthy in its na
ture, and frequently poor at that! This In
dividual's strong, and at the same time tender
point, is education ; be has somehow got the
idea that the future of the rising generation
entirely depends upon whether it receives its
intellectual pabulum from himself or from
what he would probably call, the " world's
people." To receive it from himself, Is to be
certain that none of the seeds of any other
ism but his own, will be implanted in the
tender bosom of Rising Generation, and as
his own ism is the only ism in which saving
grace abounds, as well as worldly wisdom,
it is vitally important that Rising Generation
is'nt contaminated by any other.
This Is the reason why we have had lately,
the benefit of certain efforts, exposing what
be thinks to be the machinations of the evil-
minded and corrupt, to sap tbe strong fonn
dation of moral uprightness. Herein Mis
sionary is unfortunate. Herein be has, by
long broodlDg cpon one subject, having
started wrong in the first place, being all the
time unable to see a long distance and only
one Eide at that so contracted his vision
that he can hardiy see at all. To him, all
may appear dark and dangerous outside of
his own narrow range; whereas, to those
who have not been blinded, as he has been,
and who are able to look with Impartial eyes,
on all sides, everything looks serene. It is
Indeed difficult to make one believe, that
" Missionary" when he makes such sweep
ing allegations, as be does sometimes; In
regard to the character of those whom he
thinks it his duty to animadvert upon, Is
not wilfully and maliciously slandering his
neighbors, to attain some evil end of his own.
It is most natural for us to think, that when a
person who has opportunities to "know
whereof bespeaks" and professes "to know"
makes charges against others, (be they public
servants or private citizens,) which the law
would probably punish by the name of " slan
der," and which charges have no foundation,
except in tbe distorted brain of him who
makes them, that the man is a wilfully mis
chievous character; and that he dares to
make bis allegations to tbe Injury of others,
because of tbe comparative security of an
anonymous newspaper correspondent. Now
this Is what this Individual signing himself
"Missionary" has done, and this Is what
most impartial people think of him. We
should, however, have more charity for him ;
we should recollect bow easy it is for one's
mind to become distorted by misdirected
zeal, and an over-weening confidence in
himself, and his own opinions, so that he be
lieves all, outside of his little narrow world,
are capable of every offence. If for the
moment, he imagines himself the protector
of morals, he thinks these wicked people
are corrnptors of morals, and accuses them
accordingly. If he imagines himself the
champion of liberty, these wicked ones arc
the oppressors of the weak, and he accuses
them of being so. If he feels called upon
to protect the worldly wealth of himself or
others, these ungodly cormorants are seek
ing for spoils, and be loudly warns his friends
to double lock their doors and keep careful
watch ! The world la fact is going to per
ditionaccording to his diseased Imagina
tion. He looks forward from day to day
with the most melancholy forebodings, deem
ing It Impossible that any other fate can be
in store for the world, save that of the
" cities of the plain," and that he may at
any moment, be called upon to act tbe part
of another Lot. Like another Jonah, be be
lieves himself to be sent to warn the modern
Nineveh, and as it does not repent, he no
doubt believes that the reason why it is not
utterly destroyed, Is because it still contains
one righteous man, and that he is that right
eous one. This is my theory In regard to
"Missionary." He believes all he eays, and
von can bring the most Irrefragable proof
that he is wrong, you cannot convince him.
He will not see. The world advances and
the people progress; yet he keeps on de
nouncing and foreboding evil. To say this
of him, is not denying that he Is a bad and
mischievous member of tbe community, or
that he is not capable of doing great Injury.
No indeed I He is just the man to retard
progress at home, if he Is listened to; and,
most assuredly, be is just the man to Injure
ns abroad, because his voice Is never heard,
except in denouncing the wickedness and
corruption of every one except himself; and
people In foreign countries not knowing
that his ism Is fanatic-Ism, are liable to be
misled- Now, let us be charitable towards
Missionary," let us look upon him as we
would upon any other monomaniac for he
is one, just as much as though he believed
that be was a China tea pot and try to cure
him of the terrible hallucination under
which be labors, and we may make a useful
citizen of him for surely such zeal as his,
directed in a proper channel is capable of
great good. Let us teach him, gradually and
gently that he Is not " the man" and that
"wisdom will not die with him," but that,
when be has acted his little part in the world,
and Is called to bis last account, the world
will go on as tbongh nothing of importance
had happened. - Let us point out to him, in all
kindness, that the master whom be professes
to serve, was not in His sojourn upon earth,
a breeder of -contentions and strifes, but
rather, that His was a mission of peace and
good will, and that His messenger should
follow His great example. They shonld
eschew the vanities and ambitions of this
world, not only "rendering unto Carsar that
which is Caesar's," but letting Cfesar enjoy

The following Is quoted from the Sacra
Beet Scoae. The sugar beet seed has
cornel The French bark Biyonnaisc, 154
days from Bordeaux, arrived having on
board the sugar beet seed, purchased by
Wadsworth in France and Germany for the
Sacramento Valley Dcet Sugar Company.
Tbe ground has been prepared some time
awaiting the arrival of this seed, and It will
be planted at once. Some 150 acres of
ground will be planted by the company In
the vicinity of Brighton, and lots of five,
ten or fifteen acres will be planted here and
there by individuals on contract with tbe
company at so much per ton for the beets
delivered. Everything connected with this
enterprise has been dormant for some weeks
because of the non-arrival of this seed, but
considering the land In which it is to be
planted the alluvLl bottoms along the

matter will have a fair experiment this Fall.
If this sugarie succcds this year there will
be a dozen erected in tbe State next year,
und with their success sugaries will multiply
indefinitely until we manufacture enough
for home consumption, at least and it may
be that we can supply some other States
with this article.
Again the ce has the following:
It will be recollected thatayearagoGcorge
Gordon, of San Francisco, made a great
splurge through the newspapers about beet
root sugar that be distributed seed, and ask

Treaty)was made we have heard nothing from

he would have seed here to be planted
this year, and would contract with far
mers for raising the beets; but he has
becu entirely "silent on tbe subject,
and has used his influence with the San
FrancUco Clamber of Commerce, and other
wise, to have the Senate approve that treaty
which takes tbe duty off raw sugar coming
from the Islands. Before tbe Senate meets
again we shall kuow to a certainty whether
sugar from beets can be profitably made
here; and, the entire press of this State, and
all tbe public and patriotic men upon the
coast, will be Invited to unite in a call upon
tbe Senate to strike out that free sugar clause
at least; or, if it will not, then to reject the
treaty. We must protect home Industry.
We must not give to foreign capital to
these Sandwich Island plantations, owned
by Englishnen and worked by peons, this
advantage over our own capital and indus
try. To do so would be a lasting disgrace
a public outrage.
Well, it appears that the Protectionists are
still alive. As to the announcement that the
plantations are owned by Englishmen, and
worked by peons, there are only 500 tons, out
of the entire crop this year, from estatesown
ed by Englishmen, though there Is no particu
lar reason why an Englishman should not own
a plantation here, as well as a Scotchman
(Mr. Gordon,) own the largest interest In a
sugar-refinery in San Francisco. Of tbe
peons who work the plantations, we have no
knowledge; but those who are attached to
the sugar interest here can not be astouished
at misrepresentations abroad, when like mis
representations are tolerated in their own
The Oakland yeas, in commenting on the
above, has the following:
The object of the cncouiaccment fof
the Treaty), on the part of the refininc
combination is readily explained. It is
not long since contracts were made with
the principal planters of Hawaii, by
which they are bound to furnish smrars
to the San Francisco refineries at a stat
ed price, which admits of a handsome
profit on the refined article. These con
tracts are still in force, and must so remain
for a long time to come. The reduction, or
rather abrogation of the tariff, as proposed
by the treaty, will largely enhance the pro
fits of the refineries and enable them to se
cure a perfect monopoly of tbe market on
this coast. Having secured the supply for
years in advance, no danger could be
apprehended of any opposition, as Manila
and China sugars would still be subject to
duty, and from these points alone could the
raw article be shipped with any profit. The
experiment of establishing a local refinery
from which the markets of China, British
America and Australia could be supplied.
was made oy tne ilawalians, out proved a
failure, and they are now dependent upon
San Francisco and the sugar refineries for !
their market. It is raanifestlv to the interest
of Mr. Gordon and his fellows to secure the
paseaire of tbe treatv. and tbe planters, as
a self-protecting measure, are assisting by
every means within their power. Large
sums of money have been contributed to
secure tbe influence of prominent politicians
at Washington, in favor of the project.
Judge Harris, the bigh-cock-alorumot Hawa
iian politics, spent a whole season in urging
the passage of tbe treaty, and now, another
agent of King Kamebameba is at the capital,
sanguine that his efforts to secure a favorable
vote in tbe Senate, after recess, will be crown
ed with success. Unless some decided effort
is made bv parties on this side of tbe conti
nent, interested in tne new movement or
oeet-root sugar, aiainst the uassase of tbe
treaty, we have little doubt that it will be
ratified; and then good-bye, Beet-root!
Now, the refinery contracts were only for
the then current year, and having expired,
are not now in force andtofarfrombelngso
for a long time to come, have not been so for
a long time past. No one here ever heard of
the experiment of a local refinery from which
to supply the market or China, British
America and Australia: There was a small
establishment, for the purpose of extracting
the sugar from the second molasses, after
the planter had taken out all be profitably
corfld. We ought to be glad that our Oak
land friend, has but little doubt, that the
Treaty will be ratified, unless some decided
effort Is made, as above. Regarding the
large sums of money contributed to secure
the influence of prominent politicians, Mr.
Harris has no recollection of seeing any
money but his own.
The Alia California has the following par
"The King of the Sandwich Islands has of
late bought much real estate in bis do
minions ; ana the opinion is expressed that
His Majesty, in so dolnr. is seekinc- to feather
his nest, in anticipation of a rise In property,
resulting from the annexation of his realm
to the United States."
Tbe transactions have not reached our
ears. His Majesty is not known, here, to
have purchased any property since nearly
three years ago. If such a purchase had
been made, the motive above expressed
would pot be suspected here. But it seems
to be quite the fashion to say that "the
opinion is expressed," or. "there Is a ru
mor," when no one has beard the "opinion"'
or"rnmor," before seeing It published.

Some will be retained on tbe road ; some will

will be wanted on other railroad enterprises,
which are being developed in various parts
of this coast- There are the branches to
Salt Lake and Paget Sound; the railroad
through Idaho to Oregon; the Marysville
road, northward ; the Sonthern Pacific Rail
road, and others; and besides all these, a
great multitude of hands will be needed on
the water front Improvements at Oakland.
The Federal Appointment.
The people of this city have become dls
gusted with nearly all of the appointments
which have been made by the new Adminis
tration for positions in this State. Poor
Grant has had a hard time of it. He tries to
do his best takes the advice of Senators
and so far has, in nearly every instance, made
miserable blunders In bis appointments. In
a country as extensive as this Is, It is impos
sible for the Executive to inform himself
in regard to tbe capabilities of candidates,
and of the position and rights of those he
displaces, while Senators have certain debts
to pay to certain of their constituents, ron-
traciea annng tueir scramoic lor place and
power. So the result has been that rood and
faithful men have been displaced, and incapa-
Die omce-sccsers nave ocen appointed, ine
case that lias created most complaint in this
community is that of displacing the present
Assaycr, Melter and Refiner, and Coiner of
tne .Mint, and me appointment or inexpert
enced politicians in theirplaces. It happens
that jut at this time we arc suffering from a
most unusual strlngsncy In the money
market, occasioned, to a certain exteut, by
tne great aemana ior casn capital in tne in
ternal improvements of the City and State:
by the stoppage of several bullion-producing
mines at Gold Hill; by tbe large drain for
developing the White "Pine mines : and for
other causes, and it is said that a change of
oniccrs now, wouia cause a serious panic,
which would prove disastrous to the whole
Pacific Coast. Before tbe new officers could
enter upon their duties, the operations of the
Mint would require to be suspended until the
accounts of tbe old incumbents could be
settled. This could not be accomplished in
less than six weeks, as a general clcaning-up
to recover the waste gold from furnaces,
chimneys, utensils, floors, carpets, Ac., would
have to be done. The Mint turns out from

four millions of dollars. Senator Cole. who.
it Is said, has been the cause of this trouble,
has come in for a large share of abuse, in
fact,;for all the abuse of the local papers, and
his political record has been badly marred.
These appointments are considered a great
outrage on tbe rights and Interests of the
business community, and a plain violation of
tne principles wnicn were put lorwara oy the
new Administration in regard to appoint
ments. In view of the disastrous conse
quences which would result from the stop
page of the Mint, a petition, signed by mcr-
cnauis una nanKcrs, protesting against tne
removals, was telegraphed to Wasbineton.
and cost $200 for charges. The Chamber of
Commerce held a special meet ing, and adoot
ed a protest, which was sent to Senators
Casserly and Stewart. But the Senate con
firmed tbe appointments, despite the utmost
opposition of these gentlemen. San Fran
cisco then telegraphed directly to Grant,
through Secretary Boutwell, and it Is proba
ble that tbe commissions will be withheld
from the new appointees, until the crisis Is
safely passed, and perhaps, indefinitely. This
community may growl against tnelr Senator
