""e polilblied last week all llie corrcs
potHtarCe which hid taken place between
this Government, 3Ir. AV. Xcilsou and
otlters, on tlx; subject of the lute of 3Iail
Steamers between San Francisco and the
Xew Zealand and Australian Colonies.
"We did so from the fact that Mr. Xeilson
had, as wc understood, thought flt to pub
lish in the Advertiser of the M eek previ
ous a Krtion of" the correspondence in
question, apparently with the view of
dutnoifetrating to the public that this
Government had shown a most remarka
ble apathy in grasping the advantages to
this country, which he in his character as
Agent of a Steam Ship Company in
San Francisco, most graciously offered
it. We are entitled to express this
opinion inasmuch as he bitterly de
nounced the Governhient in a public
room of this city, a few hours after
Lis arrival here on his return from
Xcw Zealand. "Vc say in his capacity
as Agent of a Steam Ship Company in San
Francisco with some little hesitation and
misgiving, although we must believe that
be Stowed some authority to Mr. Vogel,
the Postmaster General of Xcw Zealand,
or it is not probable that that gentleman
would have negotiated the contract which
he undoubtedly did with Mr. Xcilson, as
agent for Messrs. Holladay & Brenham,
for the establishment of a steam route
between San Francisco and. Xcw Zea
land. Still it is somewhat remarkable
that although Mr. Xeilson, in his
letter of October 24th, represents that
he "is acting in the interest of the
North Pacific Transportation Company
and "Win. II. Webb, which are consoli
dated," and that Mr. Yosel says in his
communication of November 22d, that he
''has made an agreement on the part of
the Government of New Zealand, with
Mr. Xeilson, acting as agent of Mr. Webb
of New York, and Messrs. Holladay, Bren
ham & Co. of San Francisco," yet Mr.
Xeilson sigued the contract only " for and
on behalf and in the name of Holladay &
Brenham." To say the least, there is con
siderable inconsistency in this state of
tilings; but then the gentleman appears
to have considered himself the embodi
ment of the Company President, Board
of Directors, Mauager and Agent, in fact,
sole owner of all the steamers now occu
pied on the various routes of the Company,
as well as those belonging to Mr. Webb,
now in the harbor of San Francisco. His
style of negotiation was remarkably osten
tatious ; indeed, so far as this Government
is concerned, negotiation is hardly the
properterm ; a demand for tribute would
be a better way of expressing his mode of
It is not, however, important at present
to ascertain and define Mr. X.'s exact re
lations tb the Company (or Companies) in
question; he may own the "whole con
cern," or the Company may have dele
gated to' him full authority to regulate
steam navigation fii the Pacific Ocean to
suit himself, as the case may be. It is
rather cur intention at present to call the
attention -of our readers to the correspond
ence In question, and point out as clearly
as possible the real position of affairs, and
to demonstrate that no one here has left
anything undonej which should have1een
done to secure the advantages which are
sere to follow the permanent establish
ment of a"line of steamers between San
lYanciscrfand the Colonies, which shall
stop here a sufficient length of time to take
and discharge freight both' ways. With
out this latter condition we fail to see the
Incalculable advantages which would flow
in upon us from the establishment of such
a line of steamers.
The King's Ministers asked the last
JjegisLuive Assembly tb place at the dis
posal of the Execativea sam oififty thou
sand dollars for the ab3izing of a line
of steamers between the Colonies of Aus
tralia, New Zealand and this port, to be
used at the discretionof the King in Cabi
net Council, to which request that body
cheerfully responded, and inserted in the
Appropriation Bill the sum asked for, with
the following words attached : " To be
paid at the discretion of H. M.'s Cabinet
with the consent of the Privy Council, in
sums 'not exceeding two thousand dollars
per month, to any line of steamers running
between the ports of Honolulu, Anstralia
and New Zealand, making Honolulu a ter
minus or stopping place for receiving and
delivering cargo." It will therefore be
apparent that no appropriation was made
directly toa line of steamers (as has been
claimed), but simply gave authority to the
'Government to contract with responsible
parties willing to make this place a port of
call, should the advantages likely to ac
crue from the outlay of a sum of money
(large in proportion to our revenue), ap
pear, to justify its action ; there can be no
doubt that the Legislature expected care
and thoughtfulness iat the expenditure ol
the funds voted, by the Cabinet and Privy
Council, and placed implicit trust in their
discretion. On so important a subject, it
behooves the Government to see that the
faith thus given, should not be abused.
What is the history of the matter? Mr.
Xeilson arrived in this city by the Moses
Taylor in October, and on the 24th of that
month addressed a letter to the Minister
of the Interior, after a personal interview,
in which he states that he represents the
consolidated interests of Mr. Webb and
Messrs. Holladay, Brenham & Co., but as
we understand produced no document to
show he had authority to act for them.
He received an answer from the Govern
ment assuring him of its wish to establish
a permanent steam service between Hono
lulu and-Australia, and giving assurances
of their intention to meet the wishes of the
Legislature, should a reasonable guaran
tee be given that cargo could be shipped
and delivered, and that they did not find
themselves left out in the cold on some day
that should meet the convenience of the
Company. Whilst Mr. Xeilson was ab
sent on his mission, Mr. Collie, who was
well known to have made a tour of the
Colonies in the interests of Mr. Webb, and
was no doubt his agent in the steam busi
ness,arrived here and remained some days,
but we have been told that ho did not
make himself known to any memberof the
Government; which, if a fact, does not
show great anxiety on' his part to receive
our co-operation ; but however that may
be, Mr. Xcilson returned to this town on
the 24th of December, by the Wonga
Wonga, bringing with him a printed copy
of the contract made between himself and
Mr. Vogel for the establishment of a line
of steamers between Xcw Zealand and
San Francisco ; which copy he transmitted
to the Government on the 2th, not on
the 20th, as printed in the Advertiser, giv
ing this Government notice that he was
prepared tp notify the Xew Zealand Gov
ernment at once that he named Honolulu
as a port of call, calling especial attention
at the same time to the 7th clause of the
contract. Said clause reading as follows :
"7. The said steam vessels may call at two Inter
mediate places and no mure between Auckland and
San Francisco and between San Francisco and Auc
land and such two places may be at any of the Ha
waiian Society Navigators or Fijian Islands as Wil
liam Ncllson whose signature Is hereto ' affixed as
agent of the Contractors shall think lit and appoint
and such ports after being appointed may be altered
from time to time by the Contractor with the con
sent of the Postmaster-General but not otherwise."
We call special attention to the last
clause of the section, which shows clearly
that an agreement made by Mr. W. Xeil
son, on the terms proposed by himself,
would have stultified our Government
and would justly have rendered them a
laughing stock to the world
AVc have seen "above that the Legisla
ture and. Government anticipated steam
intercourse with both Xew Zealand and
the Australian Colonies, the latter being
in fact the market in which our Planters
and Farmers are more especially interest
ed. But what shall we say of the docu
ment, to which the attention of our Gov
ernment was invited, when we 'read the
following 25th and 2Gth Articles of the
"25. No mails whatever to or from "any of the
Colonies of Australia or to or from New Caledonia
except as hereinbefore provided shall be received on
board or carried in any of the steam vessels etnploy
cd uuder this contract without the written consent
of the Postmaster-General and fur every breach of
this stipulation with the consent cr connivance or
through the negligence of the Contractors they shall
forfeit the sum of 500 as liquadated damages to be
deducted from any sums then dneor to becomedue
by way of subsidy tinder this contract."
" 20. In pursuance of the Postal Convention exist
ing between the United States Government and the
Colonial Government of New ealand and In order
to ensure reasonable contributions from.tbe Austra
lian Colonies and New Caledonia for mail-servicus
to be performed for them whether under the terms
of this Contract such contributions would be para
ble to the Government of New Zealand or the Con
tractors neither the Postmaster-General nor the
Contractors shall or will transmit or permit to be
transmitted and will use their best endeavors to
prevent the transmission of all malls to or from
any of the Australian Colonies or to or from New
Caledonia unless such Colony or New Caledonia
repectlvely shall t;ive such a contribution as afore
said and in case of any wilful breach of this stipula
tion the party breaking the same shall forfeit and
pay to the other the sum of 500 as liquidated."
After our readers have read and
pondered on the" three articles presented
here, we think they will be satisfied that
some caution is necessary before making
an agreement with any person, more es
pecially one who does not produce author
ity to bind his principals
There is much more to be said on this
subject, but our space forbids a thorough
examination of the contract in this issue.
In the New York Journal of Commerce
of Dec $t, we find the text of a letter of
Hon. Reverdy Johnson to the President
of the Great Western Insurancejnpany,
on the subject of the Alabama, claims.
This company.lost,$326,000 upon vessels
insured by them and captured by the
Alabama, and in common with other
claimants, the gross of ,whose claims is
about $13,000,000, had fifed their claims
in the State Department in Washington
to be pressed and recovered by the Xa
The negotiations between the American
and English governments, having been
brought to a "pro forma " close, without
any mutual agreement as regards a settle
ment; "or any reasonable hope that the
private claimants will at any time obtain
indemnity through the action of their
government;" Mr. Johnson advises, as
these claimants "are informed and believe,
that applications made by themselves di
rectly to the British Government for such
satisfaction will be successful," that they
should avail themselves of this method.
He gives his opiuion that the Administra
tion cannot interpose any legal objection
to the claimants pursuing this course, and
cannot reasonably prevent them from so
doing. He concludes his argument by say
ing : " My advice to the underwriters is,
that they withdraw the claims which they
hold from the fijatc Department, and seek
satisfaction from Great Britain. This I
cannot suppose will be refused them, or
that the Administration, if they will con
sult their law officer, will not be advised
that to refuse would be alike illegal and
unjust." In view of this opinion it is
probable that the Insurance Companies
will attempt, at least, to manage their own
claims; and if tJiey mdet with success, all
private claims for losses by the Alabama
will follow in the same course for settle
ment, freed from the disputed points of
international law, or politicilcomplications
that have been mixed in the negotiations
between the Governments thus far.
In his account of the abandoned nego
tiations, Mr. Johnson asserts that the
whole scope of his instructions, as well as
that of his predecessor, Mr. Adams, was
to obtain payment of the claims of private
sufferers only; and that under the Con
vention concluded with Lord Clarendon on
the 14th of January, 1809, he has no doubt
" that all the losses would long since have
been fully discharged."
He says alsothat claims for public dam
ages, though set up after the Convention
had been concluded, were proposed by
him to Lord Clarendon for adjustment by
a supplementary Convention, and the pro
position had been favorably viewed, and
would have been acceded to, if his instruc
tions "had been modified so as to enable
him to ask such a supplement.
The letter also examines the point that
has been raised, that the claims in the pos
session of the underwriters belong to the
United States, and that the underwriters
are not entitled to them because they were
satisfied by the premium they received.
He claims, that under the well settled prin
ciple of law, that in cases of total loss the
underwriter is subrogated to all the rights
of assurance : that neither the original
owners of the vessel nor the United States
have any property in them, and that only
the underwriters have the right to insti
tute claims for restitution. The Journal
comments: " We hope the underwriters
will seek satisfaction from Great Britain
direct, and so put the bothering Alabama
business on the road to at least a partial
Considerable has been said in the pa
pers, here and in San Francisco, in regard
to the distances between the various
points on the route between San Francis
co and the Xew Zealand and Australian
Colonies. AVc give below, what we be
lieve to be the actual distances : ,
S:in Francisco to Honolulu 2,100 miles
Honolulu to Fiji . 2.S30
Fiji to Auckland 9J0
Total San Francisco to Auckland 5,220
From Aucklaud to Sydney 1,280
Total ban F'co to Sydney via Auckland 7,100
From San Francisco to Fiji via Honolulu 4,030
From Fiji to Sydney: 1,510
Total from Sau Francisco to Sydney via
Honolulu and Fiji 0,450
It- will be seen by the above distances
that Sydney is really but 530 miles furth
er from San Francisco, via Honolulu and
the Fijis, (both of wliich are in the direct
line), than Auckland, a distance equal to
about two days steauiiug of the vessels
now employed on the route. This makes
a dillereiicc in favor of a direct "route to
Sydney of 750 miles, or three days steam
ing. It therefore looks reasonable that
the Australian Colonies, being the most
flourishing and populous, will eventually
insist upon the main line ot steamers run
ning direct, with a branch line to Auck
land from the Fijis. Indeed, the distance
from San Francisco to Melbourne via, Syd
ney, by the direct line, would be less by
about 200 miles than that to Sydney, via-
Auckland. Tahiti has been spoken off as
a probable port of call instead of Hono
lulu. It is true that the route via Pape
ete is about 35 miles shorter to Auckland
than Honolulu, but the danger of the
navigation over the direct route is much
greater than by this route, besides, it
seems to be one of the objects of the colo
nists to develop by the new line of steam
ers the commerce of the Fijis. These Is
lands are about 1500 miles directly" west
of Tahiti, and to visit them would take
steamers out of their direct path from 800
to 1,000 miles, a delay which is not to be
thought of when time is one of the princi
pal objects. .
What She objects to. The articles of the treaty
of Paris most obnoxious to Ratela, and forced upon
her by the alliance of France, England and Tnrkey,
are, of course, those which prevent her from fortify
Ing her southern coast, or entering the Black Sea
velfu her navy. These articles are as follows:
Art. 11. The Black Sea is neutralized. While open
io the mercantile marines of.all notions, its waters
and ports are formally and in perpetuity interdicted
to vessels of war, whether belongiuc to nations
Uarinc territory bordering on it or otherwise.
Arf. 13. The Black Sea Leinz neutralized bva fore
going provision, Russia and Turkey engspe neltVr
to construct nor maintain aoy caval or. military
arsvBSJ upon Its coasts.
