1m ottr isee of the 7th inst-, in an arti
cle beaded " " Oar. IVospecfe," we took
otcmmb, ka view of the falling on" of tlie
vrhaliBcr hasisess, to congratulate our
resjVcfS pM the fttct that, altlrough this
bnsioees, ivkich had been of such import
ance to the eoMHtry, which had done so
much, i feci, to create the present com
mercial prosperity of this Kingdom, had
in compftrtHMt to its former importance
nearly ceased, this country was in a posi
tion to get along very comfortably with
ct them. We had not the slightest in
tention of saying anything at which the
whalers in port, or out ol it, could reason
ably take otfetroe, and up to date we have
not beard of any of them having fait
aggrieved at our remarks. When we
published the article in question, we kuew
how dangerons it was for this patter to
tar "whaler," because it has been the an
aaal cry for years, that the policy of the
GazrrrK has been to drive the whalers
away. A year ago such was the positive
nt ore of the accusation that the Ga
Za.it a haI at last sncceeded in driving
them away, that we were hardly pretwred
to see nearly the whole fleet again visiting !
here this all, and doing their business in
the same quiet, intelligent manner as
usual, never hinting that any one had
tried to drive them away from here, and
showing that they do not require the as
sistance of their demonstrative friends of
the Advertiser to jealously watch over
them lest they should hp insulted. We
presume that they can take care of them
freirea, and the feeble efforts of tho above
sained paper ia its issues of last week and
the week before, to take us to task because
we simply said that the time was not far
distant when we should have no Xorth
PaeiiiL whaling fleet, and when in conse
quence, the important and lucrative busi
ness which has beeti carried on in the jKrts
ot this Kingdom with the whalers most
come to an end. Xow, we would like to
know who, aooaaiated with the business,
will deny the above assertion. Are onr
serehants this year doing the business
with them even in proportion to numbers
that they have done in former years?
By no means; the reason being, that
nearly half the ships are going "home"
and require but few supplies, while the
basieess, to make it profitable, requires
the most rigid economy on the part of
those who remain to try another season
north. Their supplies are sent to them
and they exchange with each other (as !
tbey have a right to do), by which means
they are enabled to refit and recruit in the
mot economical manner, making all there
k to be made in the business and saving it
for themselves and owners. Xow, we are
told thai the business does not pay, even
ander these circumstances, with good :
ratdaes; that the risk of sendin? ships to !
tbe Arctic to remain until the middle of!
October, or else return to port empty, is '
too great t be ersevered in. "We notice j
that some of onr shrewdest merchants here
are withdrawing their vessels from the
badness; and certainlv we have advan
tages in fitting out, and in our proximity
to the whnfiag grounds, over any port on
Probably if, in noticing the decadence in
the whaling business a decadence caused
simply by the fact that it probably will
not pay f jr the labor and risk involved
we had ignored the fact that, owing to the
enterprise of capitalists and others, agri
culture would continue to make the coun
try prosperous, and advised everybody to
pet oa sackcloth and go out aud starve,
we should probably have met the views of
oar contemporary and wouldn't have in
ssked the whalers.
The following is the correspondence
trnica took place on the subject of tbe '
Foreign Representatives at Paris being J
aaoB-ed to send couriers beyod tbe tines
ef the besieging army. IT. Jules Favre
writes to Count Bismarsk as follows:
Mess lx Coxts : Tbe Diplomat!; Corps
reieSs at Paris bare desired me to request jocr
KxceHocT to be varaed io case of bomrcrdaient,
so thai tier say edihl-aw from tke city.' It,
(the Dtfiosatk Corps,) would likewise desire to
send, oace a week a courier, exclusively diplo
matic, noder every precaution which yonr Excel
lency may see fit to take."
The letter of the Diplomatic Corps,
under date of Paris, 6th of October, 1870,
and directed to Count Bismarck, is to the
following effect :
"The undersigned, members of the Diplomatic
Corpj. resident in Paris, on the 24th of Septem
ber hut. had the honor to forwardac your Ex
cellency the expression of their desire, that a
bearer of their official dispatches misht. each
week, on certain dajs to be destenated, pass the
lines of the besiegim: army and repair to a lo
cality whence the postal service is assured.
By a letter of the 3d of October, the Minis
ter of Foreign Affairs of France has informed us
that be bad received a reply from your Excel
lency, that a Diplomatic Courier could cross tho
lines of the be?ieriBg troops only on condition
that their dispatciKes should be open, and should
ttMt on so subject perUinirp to the war.
We would deem it our duly, as recard4he con
tent' of oar dispatehes, to conform, scrupulously,
to the olli?alie)t3 imposed, daring a siege, on
Diplomatic Apeots, by tbe rules and usages of
interna tienal law.
On tbe ether band, onr position, as Diplomatic
A cents, and our obligations towards our own
Governments", do Dot permit as to accept the
other condition, to address them only with open
If this last condition should be insisted upon,
it would become luipossibfe. to tleir irrmt regret,
for Diplomatic Hepresenatives of neutral States
to carry on their official relations to their re
spective Governments. .

ances of oar very high appreciation.

Count Bismarck replied from Versailles,
on tbe 10th of October, as follows:
" I bad tbe honor to receive a letter, under date
of Gth of October last, by which the members of
tbe Diplomatic Corps, still residing at Paris,
havn informed -me that it would be impossible for
tbetn to cootioae their official connection with
their respective Governments, if the condition
of addressing them only by open dispatches should
be insisted upon.
When tbe cootinnation of the siege ol Paris
was rendered inevitable by the refusal of an
aiisistiee by tbe French Government, anticipated,
by its own action, by a circakr note of the Sec
retary of State, M. de Thito. under date of the
26th of September last, a copy nf which I had
the honor to transmit, to the agents of neutral
Powers, accredited, at Berlin, that the liberty of
com swaica lion with Paris would no longer exist,
except so far as military events might permit.
The same day, I received, at Ferrieres, a com
munication from M. tbe Minitter of Foreign Af
fairs of the Government of National Defense,
which informed me of tbe desire expressed by
the members of the Diplomatic Corp. to be per
mitted to send dUpalhces to their Governments
by weakly coun. and I did not hesitate, whilst
conforming to rules established by international
law. to make a reply, dictated by the necessities
of the military silaatioo. a copy of which 1 now
transmit to your Excellency.
The representative of an actual Government
have thought fit to establish their Government
in the midst of tbe fortifications of Paris, and to
choose that city and its environs as the theatre
of war. If the members of the Diplomatic
Corps, who are credited to a former Government,
have deckled to share, with tbe Government of
National Defense, the inconveniences inseparable
from an abode in a besieged fortress, it is not the
Government of the King which bears the respon
sibility. Whatever may be our confidence that the
trentlemen who signed tbe letter of tbe 6lli of
October, would personally conform, in the com
munications addressed to their Governments, to
the obligations which their presence in a besieged
fortress, according to the law of war, imposes
on Diplomatic Agents, tbe possibility that certain
facts of importance in a military view, misht
escape them, must be taken into consideration.
Besides, it is evident that they could not farni.-h
the same guarantee for the messenters whoni
they might see fit to employ, and whnm we
should be obliged to allow to pass and re-pass
across our lines.
There has been created at Paris a state of
things to which modern history, from the point
of international law, does not offer any precise
analogy. A Government at war with a Power
which bos not'jet recognized it, is shut up in a
besieged fortress, and finds itself surrounded by
a party of Diplomats accredited to a Government
which tbe Government of National Defense has
superseded. In face of a situation so irregular,
it would be difficult to establish, on the basis of
the law of nations, rules exempt from controversy
in every point of view.
I hope that your Excellency will not mis
understand the justice of these observations, and
wilt appreciate the considerations which hinder
me, to my great regret, from giving currency to
the desire expressed in the letter of the Gth of
October last. Jf. ic the meantime, the signers
should not be able to admit the justice or it, the
Governments which they represent at Paris, and
to which I shall promptly communicate tbe cor
respondence exchanged with them, will take the
matter into consideration, and put themselves
into communication with the Government of the
King, to examine the questions of the law of
nations, which pertain to the abnormal position
which the events and measures of the Govern
ment of National Defense bare created at Paris."
This letter, signed by Count Bismarck,
was directed to Monseigneur Fla vius, Arch
bishop of 3iyre, the Papal Nuncio at
Paris, for himself and the other signers of
It may, without argument, be conceded that
the risks of sugar plantations on these Islands
would be lessened, if the planter were able to
sell his product in Honolulu, instead of sendiog
it abroad. It is also evident that buyers or sugar
bv the cargo, in our ports, are not as plenty as
plovers, and that it is not as eu3y to manufacture J
a buyer as it is a keg of No. I sugar. T he first
step, therefore, is to catch the hare." and ad
mitting that he has been caught, tho next step
to make a bargain with him is full of difficulty
The buyer, in his calculations, has to assume
all the risks, cbsrses. arid contingencies of the
transportation to. and sale in a foreign market,
and also a margin fur his profits. His offer per
pound for sugar, as the result, would of course be
less than the plantations have realized heretofore.
But the margin tor profits would be such a hard
point to agree upon, with the planters, that only
a small part of their cros would be sold here,
and buyers, consequently, would soon disappear
from the field.
It is pertinent to this point to recall the ex
perience of the only wholesale buyer that has
put u in an appearance"' here. the San Francisco
Refinery. The discussions as to the price.offered,
the dissatisfaction expressed over the conjecture
that tbe bujer was realizing a good profit, and
the unwillingness of the sellers to take a living
price, in preference to shipping on owners'
account, are point3 well remembered by all con
nected with the sugar interests. The result of
that buver's effort was to bo driven off " the
beach,1' and his return, as well as that of other
Refiners, to Manila and Batavia for their raw
There have not been wanting buyers among
our own people. merchants and others, with
debts abroad to be paid, who have been willing
to send sugar instead of exebanre, but they have
met with the same difficulty. the allowance of -a
sufficient margin, and whatever may have !een
their disposition to ship sugars, their experience
of losses lias been sufficient to put them ulso out
of the field. Vet this ought to be tbe regular
course of business, the trader to pay his foreign
debts with shipments of sugar, and the planter
selling it to him in Honolulu. Tho yearly ex
hibit of the Custom-House shows that this could
be done, and that the relation of exports' to im
ports is favorable to it.
It will be hard to persuade foreign buyers to
congregate here, if we cannot sell sugars at such
prices as to make it an object to ourown business
men to pay their debts abroad with it.
Without the advantages possessed by other
sugar-producing countries : of crops measured by
the hundreds of thousands of tons ; of large pop
ulations, and consequently a large import trade
to supply their wants ; of neighborhood to coun
tries demanding heavy supplies of mgar. or near
ness to commercial ocean routes to the same ;
with a hold upon markets in which over-supply
is an exception, and prices therefore, iu the main,
steady ; the chances to sell our Island sugars in
Honolulu, are reduced simply to the scope of
individual speculation. Tho buyer must be of a
very hopeful and confident temperamentl or ho
must get sugars at prices very disturbing to the
It will not answer to depend upon monthly
auction sales extensively advertised here and
abroad, to create buyers, except tho planters are
prepared to sacrifice entirely the next two or
three years' crops, and that without any reason
able prospect of final success ; or can stand- on
the footing ot other sugar growers of the wor!di
and be content with a net average price of 4Jj
to 5 cents per pound for their snsars. by tho crop.
