"With the present number commences
the Seventh Volume of the Llwauak
Gazette. In greeting our readers on
the occasion, to us, of a new year, we.flat
ter ourselves that we can say that we
present to them, without any very osten
tatious pretentions to perfection in jour
nalism, the promise of a usefulness and
reliability not to be found' in any other
pjjoarnal published in this Kingdom. It
has been, and will continue to be, our am
bition to make this paper the most reliable
of any published here; not only as regards
the impartial publication of what may be
transpiring in other parts of th world,
bat a truthful record of occurrences here,
a -which" may be referred to in future as cor
rect records of the past.
Journalism, in a community like this, is
no casytMsk ; and it is not rendered the
more enviable from the fact that on nearly
cvery.ljuestipn of importance which arises,
nearly every man differs from his neighbor
and the neighbor differs from every one
else ; and of course they all unitft in differ
ing with the views as expressed by the
journalist, who would have the right to be
inconsolable if it were not for the fact that
,he is no more ajontyin his views than any
This community being a remarkably
quiet one, it is a most difficult matter to
fill tliccolumiis of a paper with such sen
-national items oi local news as are in a
.peasuro demanded by every newspaper
reading people. It is undoubtedly most
uniortunate tor the prosperity of the pa
pers that In their weekly issues they are
unable to give a reliable and detailed ac
- count of some horrible tragedy which may
have occurred during the week. It is
a cause of great congratulation to the com
, inanity that the scarcity of tragedies here
is such that the papers have no space
-penally set apart for their record, and
that the..occurrence of anything which is
heinously .wicked and criminal, is so
..very ..rare that the columns of the public
rewjonrnals are seldom darkened by tales of
T.horror. The public is very properly
lulled and assured by a feeling of se-
curity which is felt in almost no other spot
on this earth. For this reason, if for no
, pother, the reader of the local paper should
TWoneratulate himself whenever he takes it
up, that h$ lives in a country where life
and property are so secure as they are here,
and that there is little danger that he will
be startled at any time by tales, any more
than by scenes, of horror. - We even be
lieve, that here, the journalist himself does
not envy the lot of those in what some call
more advanced countries, who have from
day to day and week to week to record
tjieir ever-occurring shooting affrays, stab
bing attrays, daring robberies, horrible
murders and frightful accidents, although
'they are fully aware that many people
iwe nope not a majontyj, Delieve that the
iBe w-paper f.ils in ita principal object un
less it can furnisll more or less of such
matter in evenf issne. If thiR 5 nf.;tnro
in, journalism, atfw.e can say is, Happy
Hawaii, that your journalists are obliged
to fail in ibis respect ! "
But tojeontinue; although it is not well
b? iake too many promises, afed although
.'.fry are carrkd ut excepts the honest
promise to do ose's best, fajAnslly ad-'
tiered to, yet we vsntwe to assttre our
readers tjmk toe Iiazeitk will continue to
be the most reliable per pablisfced in
the country; that its aim will Tae to give
tKe truest and newest political, commercial,
'aWial aad general newsy that it will ad
Teeate its views in plain and unmistakable
laagaage, asd in a courteous manner, en
deavoftiig never to give offense to those
'wko titter hosestly with the opinions ex
pratVHl m ita columns; that its only aim
ia the fiitoire, as in the past, will he to use
every effort to promote the best interests
of this JQngdom, to advaace its develop
ment and encourage incremeed industry
and thrift among tbe people.
During tfie past week, tbe.project of a
Hotel Building has been taken up earnest
ly, and from the tone of .the discussion at
the meeting held at the Finance Office, of
a few of our business men, there is good
reason for believing that the project may
be carried out. As we understood the
discussion, there is a Drevailinsr belief
among our citizens that the times call for
tbe erection of a suitable building, and
that it will return a good interest upon
the cost, while it will greatly contribute
to the advancement of our business pros
Several plans were suggested as to the
manner by which the end sought for
might be secured, all of them agreeing.
however, in this, that the Government
should combine with the citizens in the
raising of the funds about $50,000
which will be needed.
A loan to this amount, it was thought,
would be readily taken up if the Govern
ment would issue its bonds, payable in
five or ten years without interest, except
what might be derived from the net ifr
come of the property or bonds, payable
in five or ten years, at a fixed rate of in
terest of six per cent.
A third plan was suggested, that a stock
company should be formed, having the
sole management of the erection and let
ting of the building ; a fixed rate of in
terest on the stock for a term of years, to
be guaranteed by the Government.
Upon a canvass of those present, upon
the first plan, twenty thousand dollars was
pledged, and the opinion was expressed
that the balance needed would be readily
taken by our citizens.
As the meeting was called merely to
discuss some practical method whereby
the project could be placed before the
public, so that if favorably disposed, all
might have a share in its realization. We
are assured tht the details will soon be
arranged, and the public will be solicited
to subscribe to the loan.
Those who keep horses here and very
few of our people, foreign and native, do
not keep them have just cause of com
plaint at the expense incurred for grain
and hay to keep their animals in a condi
tion to be useful. A person keeping a
carriage or 'saddle horse is obliged, in or
der to keep his animal in a condition that
he would be willing to present to the pub
lic, to purchase not only grain imported
here, but hay; both of which we ought to
produc here to an extent even beyond our
real wauts. Hay and oats are frequently
very scarce here, owing to the non-arrival
of vessels from San Francisco with the
regular supply, or the late arrival of the
packets which bring it. Now we believe
that all the necessary feed for the animals
kept in the country may be grown in it,
and that too at a much cheaper rate and of
a much superior quality than that imported
from abroad. For instance, oats from
San Francisco or Oregon costs here two
and one half cents per pound, or, one dol
lar per bushel of forty pounds and it
must be recollected that these oats are
full of impurities, such as burrs, other
seeds and sand, and are not always a safe
food for horses while what is called
hay, but which is really straw, such as
the farmers even in Californin would
scorn to feed to their best horses,
costs no less than from thirty-six dollars
to thirty-eight dollars per ton. Those
who keep horses here, either for their own
use or hire, are forced from the want of
proper feed produced in the country to pay
the exhorbitaut prices above stated for the
sustenance of their animals. They are ob
liged to do so from the fact that there is
no dependence whatever to be placed on
home supply of food for animals. Cer
tainly, there is a limited supply of grass
to be had in Honolulu, which, by the way,
although better than that imported and
cheaper too, is still dear in proportion to
what they ought to purchase it at.
About Honolulu, not only at Waikiki
but in Nuuanu valley and at Falama and
Kalibi abundance of excellent hay ought
to be produced for all the animals kept in
town, besides abundant pasturage for all
those kept in the vicinity including the
dairies which supply the town with milk.
As it is, those who keep horses in town
pay lor native hay (when they can get it)
one cent per pound, while those who are
unable to purchase are obliged to pay for
the Cahtornia straw from one -cent and
three quarters to two cents per pound for
it. One costs twenty dollars per ton of
two thousand pounds, while the other
costs from thirty-five to forty dollars for
the same amount. The former is suffici
ent food for any horse which is not too
much used, while the latter in almost
every instance, where it is used, is cut up
and mixed with grain and is fed for very
much the same purpose that chickens eat
gravel, namely, to help digest the food
that jeally sustainsswd if they get
enougkof it) fattens them.
When we reflect'" npon the fact that
these Isksds have, in times pastfnotonly
'produced abundance of oats, bet wheat
Enough $diipply the local-demand with
a considerable surplus for export, it'seems
strange thafwe should now be dependent
upon a foreign and very expensive market
'for supplies. We have seep, a very fair
crop of oats grown on the plains of. Kula-
okahua,' between Honolulu and Waikiki,
and every body -knows that excellent
wheat and oats have been raised at Maka-
wao, Maui Ob the former place, it is"to
be acknowledged that to depend upon the
proauction of good crops, b sot certain
and perhaps may be considered as hope
less, but in the latter locality nothW but
the apathy and want of enterprise of the
people prevents our getting our full sup-
ply of cheap and good food for animals
from that locality, and that too to the
profit of the agriculturist. It seems that
one year of unusual drought, -which is
usually accompanied with incursions of
worms and insects, which add no little
lo the difficulty of raising cerials in this
country, is sufficient to discourage the na-
live and foreign farmer alike, most effect- of the oth. During that day and the fol
nnllp ?n tbrir PtTorts. One failure seems lowing, with the assistance of the San-
to be of more weight with them than a half
a dozen years of success, preferring, as
they do, after one failure to let their lands
go fallow, and sitting down themselves,
despondent; to manfully trying it again
with a fair chance of success. Let us hope
that those interested will bestir themselves
and secure the community not only against
the necessity of importing straw, but that
of importing anything whatever from any
foreign country, to feed the animals which
we can feed better and cheaper ourselves.
Wt. Tmhlish. bv reouest. the Act 0f
1865 amending Section 240 of the Civil
Code which relates to the iraponndinir 0f
animals found crazine in the streets of
Honolulu. Many people appear to be ig
norant of the law, and its publication is
reqnested in order that every one may
have the opportunity of becoming ac
quainted with its requirements, and be
warned not to permit their animals to run
at large in the streets of the city, at the
peril of having them impounded. Just
think of it! What man or woman
with proper self respect would ride a
horse which had been redeemed from the
pound ! or what fond mother would feed
her offspring from the milk of the animal
which had been on 6hort commons at Pau

Code be, nud the same is hereby amended, by
adding to it the follwing paragraph :
The Governor of Oabn is hereby empowered
to cause nil cattle, horses, males, hogs, and asses,
allowed to graze on tbe public roads of the City
of Honolulu, and tbe environs mauka as far as
the place known as Kanoniakapueo, to be im-

The Trip of the Kllauea,
Mr. Editor :
At your request, 1 take pleasure m giv-
mg a brief account of the trip of the Ki-
lauea to Ocean Island, for the relief of the
crew of the U. S. S. Saeinaw. wrecked on
that Island. By direction of the Minister
of the Interior, I assumed charge of the
expedition on Monday the 26th of Decem-
her, and as you are aware, sailed on the
afternoon of that day. During the first
four days we experienced very licht
winds, so light in fact that the speed of
the vessel was considerably retarded for
the want of a nroner draft in the fnrnnpps.
Onthe night of 31 st December, we took
8lronrr trades which rnRli..nn.1WS,,,1!,v

thick leather and rain. On the night of
January 2d the vessel was hove to for
twelve hours with the view of sighting
Midway Island. I had been unable on ac-
count of the thick weather to obtain meri
dian observations for the two days pre-
ious,'and therefore, although aware by
my reckoning that we could not be a great
distance from the Island, was nnable to
aenne us exact position. Jn the morn
ing of the 3d, the weather being 1'avora-
ble, I found by observation that I was to
the leeward of Midway Island, and beinu
anxious to reach Ocean Island that day.
J J I
tlie vessel was immediate v headed for the
latter Island. We were, on this day, so
unfortunate as to be unable to obtain a
meridian altitude, and at two o'clock p.
by double altitudes, fouud ourselves
twelve miles to the Northward of the Is-
land. The course was at once changed
for the Island, at 3.45 p. jr. sighted the
breakers on the reef which surrounds the
Island. The next object sighted was tbe
flag-staff which had been erected by the
crew of the baginaw, the Island being so
low that it was not visible from the mast-

Uvcd on the Island that the strong west-
,jr,J wluu WUI we experienced ine nexi
morning, would have kept us there for at
least a week- 0ur passage from Midway
Island was extremely pleasant, having
had favorable winds and good weather.
We sighted Kauai at 11 a. it., on the
13th, and reached Honolulu at 4:30 p. m.,
on the 14th, having made the passage
from 3Iidway Island in seven days, and
the who.le V0-vaSe in nineteen, passing
over a alstaDce 01 2J5 miles, and being
detained at Ocean and Midway Islands
four days. The average speed on the
voyage was six and half knots. The best
day's run was 230 miles.
Yours, truly, Tiios. Loxo.
Mr. Editor: After tbe abort analysis I bare
made of he lnMn conlainet, in the Impe
rial vindication of the capitnlation of Sedan. I
now relate the no less interesting explanations
given to Mons. Tat-hard, an envoy of the French
Republic at Hrusselj, by tbe mysterious individ
ual who, under tbe name of Refrmer, went for
General Bonrbaki. who wa at Metz, with the
view of taking him to the Empress Eugenia, in
England, for certain political purposes. Regoier
called in the early part of November on Mons.
Tachard, in order to exonerate himself, as be
said, of tbe charge that' he had played tbe part
of a Prussian agent in that intrigue. He is an-
old man, of a gentlemanly and prepossessing ap
pearance, of a cultivated mind, rather inclined to
invdticism. According to his version of tbe af
fair, it was a spontaneous and patriotic idea
which he had conceived for putting an end to the
war by re-establishing the Empire, for the sake
0f the Prince Imperial, nnder the regency of
either the Empress, his mother, or of Marshal
assembled the old legislative bodies, or a "Con
stituante." to agree upon and sicn terms of peace.
This plan being in his mind, mid starting from
the conviction that Prussia, at that time, was
almost as desirous as France herself of a speed;
termination of hostilities, equally ruinous to both
parties, Regnier asfcsd nn audience from Count
von Bismarck, who unhesitatingly entered into
bis views, and gave him the necessary passports
for Metz and England. Having solicited and ob-
tained an interview with the Empress. Regnier
laid his flans before her for consideration, hut
8ha cv""d a decidedly marked disapproval of the
whole matter. Bailed in that ouarter, iho enter
prising politician addressed himself to Marshal
Bazaine, who did not show the same reluctance,
but encouraged bim in his idga, and sent, at his
request, the renowned General Bonrbaki, one of
tbe former favorites of the Taileries, to try to.
convince Her Majesty of tbe feasibility and op-
portnnity for making peace. Bnt in the mean-
"bile reflection hud only increased the aversion
of the nob'e "Ho to the scheme, and the conse-
1aenco WM lhat Genera' "ourbaki, who was
u"""un", "'Pu towaras uegnier, met
with a complete failure in the mission confided
, ... . .. , . . . ,
t0 "J hl3 Commander-in-Chief, and which he
had unwillingly accepted. In no way daunted by
this unfavorable torn of circumstances, Regnier
left General Bourbaki, and repaired to Count
Ton Bismarck, and finally managed to establish
direct communication between the Prussian Min
ister and .Marshal Bazaine. The object to be
gained was to re-constitute the Empire and a
Regency, without the assistance of the Kmpress.
I he scheme was not without many great diffi
culties, and it took a long time before it was
fuirly started. The greatest obstacle was that.
although Bazaine wis willing to agree to condi-
tiona of surrender for hi3 own army, he persist-
entl declined to enter into any arrangement that
mcIaJed the pwaon of Metz, which would have

tn defend the city. On the other
hand, General von Moltke and Princo Frederick
Charles, (Commander of the German troops be
fore Metz.) insisted that the city should capitn
late before allowing the army of ISaziine to
leave. In the midst of these complications, Mr.
von Bismarck, who, it appears, was really anxious
to terminate the sad struggle, persuaded the
King of Prussia to accept Marshal Bazaine'd
proposals. But at the moment when everything
seemed to be satisfactorily fettled, the plan was
frustrated by a telegraphic error Mr. von Bis
marck had telegraphed to Bazaine: "See Prince
Frederick Charles, and he will let yon pass with
the army which is under Metz." But the tele-
gram delivered to Bazaine read, ' with the army
tn Metz." "NuT Bazaine exclaimed, ' I will
not surrender a place still having .provisions and
ammunition enouch to defend itself," and he dis-
mUiei Prince Frle"ck Charles' messencer. who

of which were the dismantling of the Eastern
fortresses and a war indemnity or two milliards
of francs, an offer which, urJtappily, Napoleon
did not feel himself sufficiently justified io ac
cepting. Bazaine. inferred from it that pence
was sure to be concladed, on this basis, with the
Empress or with himself, and he did not wish to
sacrifice an army with which he might play the
part of an umpire a part which be desired to
ptay. prompted by ambition as well as by patriot
ism, for the indications of anarchy noticeable fn
Lyons, Marseilles, and other Southern cities, may
have induced bim to fear the total disorganization
ol tha whole country. It was a blamable calca
lation in a military point of view, as a Com-
mander-io-Chief should think of the honor of his
flag before anv thing else. The sense of military
duty is easily obliterated wnen in contact witn
politics, and there may yet be found soma exten
union for the accusations brought against the
Marshal. Before condemning his conduct, it is
only fair to wait for the explanations which he
has promised to publish in answer to the violent
attack made against him by M.de Valcourt, one
of his staff officers daring the campaign. What
ever construction may be pat apon his plans, it
is bnt justice to say that he gave evident proofs
of creat personal bravery, and even of daring
boldness., daring the siege of Metz, nod that it
was impossible for him to escape his fate in the
latter part of the campaign, after he bad failed
to seize upon tbe opportunity of breaking through
tbe iron circle before it was immovably riveted
on bis fine army, thus doomed to an unprofitable
and inglorious surrender. Yours. .
