the Miniiter c Foreign Affairs, M. Ballieu,
Consul and Commissioner of France, and
Captain Pouthier, M Ballieu is made to
say " I am happy Mr. .Minister, to receive
from you'this new proof of friendship, fee."
The sentence should have read, "I am
happy Mr. Minister, to give to you this
new proof of friendship, ttc"
By the steamers last week from San
Francisco and from Sydney, there arrived
here the principals and agentsof the steam
lines-, now established or to be established,
between San Francisco and Sydney, touch
ing at Honolulu. It appears from the state
ments of these gentleman, that the point
which is of most importance from our point
of view, that of the permanent establish,
ment of a steam line, is still an unsettled
one so far as the action of the various gov
ernments are concerned which are expect
ed to subsidize the steamers.
"We can jlace our readers, ou coitront
with the times, and the prospects of the
Australian line, only so far as the paper's
that came to hand by the last mails have
noticed the subject, and must leave each
one to conjecture the results which may
be reached at last.
"We find in the Bulletin, that Senator
Ramsey has reported to the U. S. Senate,
as chairman of the Committee on Post
Offices and Post Koads, a bill authorizing
the Post Master General to contract with
Messrs. AYebb and Holliday, (who are re
ported by rumor to have joined their in
terests, by agreeing to form a Joint Stock
Company) for subsidizing a line of Steam
ers, to connect San Francisco, with Syd
ney via Honolulu and Fijii at the rate of
This Bill, which in its main features, is
the same as that introduced at the last ses
sion of Congress, and which, after debate,
was reduced to 300,000 and finally failed
to reach a final vote, by the adjournment
of Congress, will of course go through the
usual parliamentary forms in the Senate,
and afterwards in the House of Represen
tatives, and may come to its final action
at any time before the close of Congress.
YTe should not be surprised to hear that
it had been acted upon immediately, nor
should we be surprised to hear that it re
mained on the table, unconsidered until
near the end of the session. In respect of
its present position, it is therefore no fur
ther along than it was at the close of the
last session. Senator Ramsev has also re
ported a Bill to connect Puget Sound with
Honolulu by steam. The amount of sub
sidy is not named in the telegraphic re
ports. In an article on Steamship subsidies the
Bulletin remarks, " that there is at present
before Congress bills proposing subsidies
for four Steamship lines on the Atlantic,
at an amount of some $10,000,000 per an
num; for an increase of $500,000 to the
subsidy of the China and Japan line, for a
subsidy of $500,000, to the Australian
line ; and one for Pustet Sound to Hono
lulu. "The bill proposing a subsidy of ?500,000
per annum for a line between San Fran
cisco and ports in Anstralia, is still in the
Senate. If considered wholly on its own
merits, it could hardly fail to be enacted.
But there is danger of crowding these bills
into an omnibus and making the fate of
the meritorious ones depend upon the dis
position of thoe of a doubtful character
For a long time no subsidies were granted
to steamship lines. But in later years there
has been a change of public sentiment, to
this extent, at least, that if it is necessary
for the rcttoration of our commerce and
for the encouragement of ship huUding,
subsidies should be granted in special
Our readers are aware that the Xew
Zealand Government, by virtue of the lib
eral subsidies granted by their Assembly,
entered into a contract with a Mr. Xeilson
for steamers between their ports and San
Francisco. The intention tof this contract
was to secure Xew Zealand ports as the
terminal ones of the line to be established.
This contract we learn on good authority
has been disavowed on the part of Xeilson's
principals, but will probably be revised
and modified on the part of Xew Zealand.
Xew Zealand has, up to the present, not
been able to induce the Australian Colo
nies to combine with her in this project,
and as far as we understand it, there is
no immediate prospect of such combina
tion. We clip the following item from the
Svdnev JTerald of Dec 31st:
The Legislative Assemblv of Queens
land have agreed to the following resolu
tion, moved bv Mr. Palmer : That it is
desirable that the Government be author
ised to negotiate with any parties for a
mail and passenger service, via Fijus and
San Francisco, or via Sydney, Auckland,
and San Francisco, to the United King
dom, at a cost to this colony not exceed
ing 10,000 per annum.' "
The Assembly of Xew South "Wales
commenced their session on the 24th Deo,
and npon their Budget has been placed
an item to connect Sydney with San
Francisco, via Fiji and HoboIbJb, with a
branch line Irom Fiji to AttckJasd, of
15,-000 per annum.
The Melbourne papers comaeatisg ob
this, agree that as such a line will alter
nate with the P. Jb O. Stealers, aad gire
all tbe Colonies a semi-monthly mall fro
Engla&i, that it will probably be nm-tcii
by the Cab&ey of "Victoria. Advices frea
Sydsej state tbat tbe Atraaa Steam
Xavigaticn Company are ready to take
up the contract with the X. S. "VT,
ernmcnt and that their boats now under
charter, to Mr. Hall, running under his
contract expiring in April next with the
Xew Zealand Government, will continue
to mn as heretofore so that no interrupt
ion will take place in the service. The
same advices also state that the company
propose putting cabin accomodations on
the decks of their shis, and have already
commenced the alteration in the City of
It appears from the news, that the route
that has been opened and kept up by
Hall's steamers for ten months past, is
not likely to be dropped out of sight by
steamboat owners, but that they are san
guine of getting such subsidies as may
enable them to run their boats permanent
ly. The next mail probably will shed
more light than we have at present as to
who will get the subsidies, and what will
be the amounts granted by the Legisla
tures that have the subsidies under con
sideration. The letters published in this
issue will inform the public what action
our own government have thought prop
er to take in this matter.

Sin : In reply to yonr application for assist
ance from Ilis Majesty's Government to support
a line of steamships between Sydney and this
port, connecting at Fijii with a branch line to
Auckland, His Majesty's Government direct me
to say, that npon tbe presentation at this office
on or before the 1st of May next, of a contract
duly siened by the authorities of Xew South
Wales by which they undertake to assist you
with their subsidies, and yon contract for a term
of four, five, or noreyears to ran thai Kne with
suitable ships, we will pay yoa the subsidies as
Authorized by law, viz : $2,000 per month, such
payment to commence as of January 1st, 1671.
Yoa are to understand that on signing tjje con
tract with ns, we shall insist that your ships shall
remain here long enough to take cargo, as you
have hitherto done. Oar subsidy is given mainly
to promote the transportation of cargo. Your
past service is one consideration which induces
Ilis Majesty's Government to take this step.
Should you fail to present sncb contracts, then
Ilis Majesty's Government will deem themselves
at liberty to pay their subsidies to whoever may
establish a line.
I remain, yonrs truly ,

Sis: His Majesty's Government havo tnken
into consideration everything which has been
said by youiself as Acent for Mr. Webb, touching
the establishment of a steam line from San Fran
cisco to the Xew Zealand and Australasian Colo
nies, via these Islands. This Government are
anxious to aid in tbe establishment of a line
which will give them prompt connection with the
aforesaid Colonies. You are aware that Mr,
Hall's line has established and kept np that con
nection for ten months, and we are assured that
the A. S. X. Co, of Sydney, will run a line
from and after tbe 1st of April next, and that
there will be no interruption to I be present con
nection ; we are farther assured that a subsidy
will be granted by the X. S. Wales Government
for such a line. In view of these cirenmstances,
1 have been instructed to assure Mr. Hall that if
a contract duly signed by tbe Authorities of the
X. S. Wales Government, by which tbey under
take to assist him with their subsidy, and be
contracts for a term of four. five, or more years,
to run that line with suitable sbip. our subsidies,
as authorized by law, viz. : S'2.000 per month,
will be paid to him. Should he fail, however, to
present at this Office, on or before the 1st day of
May next, such contract, Ilis Majesty's Govern
ment will hold themselves at liberty to make an
arrangement with, and pay their subsiily to who
soever may establish a line, and will pay tbe same
from the date of the first ship departing from
this port for the British Colonies.
I remain yours truly.

Here Bandkax.v : lie lovers of tbe Drama
here, may now congratulate themselves upon hav
ing tbe privilege of witnessing the personations of
one of the most celebrated living tragedians ; a
tragedian wbo has equally distinguished himself
in two languages, placing himself by his histrionic
genias at the very head of his profession in both.
Born a German, Herr Bandmann. after great suc
cess on the German stage, baring met with equal
success in Berlin and Vienna, visited America,
where, after performing with great success in the
German Theatres in Xew York and other cities.
he was induced by his admirers to perfect himself
in tbe English Lancuage and undertake tbe deli
neation of some of tbe Erst characters of Shake
speare and the other classic English characters.
In an -incredibly short time, he was sufficiently
versed in the language to undertake tbe most
difficult parts, end succeeded at once in takirg a
position on the stage which but few of those of
English and American education have been able
to attain after infinite stndy and practice in their
native tongue. What to them bad been tbe la
bor of ba!f a life-time was to Herr Bandmann,
but the labor of a few months. By tbe best crit
ics in America, his Hamlet was pronounced to be
one of the best ever presented on the American
stage, while his Othello, Iago and Shylock were
other proofs of, not only tbe versatility or his ge
nius, bat an astonishing example or hi ready ap
preciation of the spirit of the greatest of drama
tists. Mr. Bandmann's lepntation is not alto
gether snknown here, as all of na who remember
the theatrical critiques in the San Francisco pa
pers, in 1S65 remember the high encomiums of the
entire press. We had little hope then that we
shocldeverseeandcavethe opportunity of bearing
Mr. Bandmann on the Hawaiian stage. But after
visiting Engiasd, where he elicited from tbe Thea

In spite of tbe pathetic appeal to " let mo (bim)
be," I shall not do so nntil I have nailed Aat base
coin to the counter ; but, first, in order that si
lence on my part may not be misconstrued into
consent to tbe truth of a charge of a mean Sing"
at any man, or order of men, I entirely repudiate
iL I feel the sincerest pity for any one wbo
gives way to the degrading vice of drunkenness,
and corresponding respect for the man who hav
ing so fallen is able to conquer the passion, espe
cially do I honor him, who, knowing bis own
proneness to over-indulge, in order to free himself
from all danger, practices total abstinence.
Having said thus much, I do not hesitate to say
what I intended to convey in my last communi
cation, that tbe arguments which some people
imagine, are the only proper mental food for Tem
perance Societies, are not always or absorbing in
terest as news to the general public, and further,
that when they are employed as a cloak to cover
designs to despoil tho widow, or orphan of bis
rights, that tbey are intolerable, and that their
prostitution should be held np to public execra
tion I will now proceed to finish tbe little operation
I spoke of above. In the CmerciaJdrertiscr
or the ISth inst, the following article appvared
as tbe leader or the day.
"A case came up In the Supreme Court iu Banco,
on Manday last, which poesessea considerable Inter
est, bvolving as it does a question as to the consti
tutionality of a statute Jaw. Tb law iu question
was approved January 10th, 1665, and Is entitled
' An Act to prohibit the maintenance of suits lor
the recovery of debts contracted in public houses."
The trsl section reads as follows:
" Xo suit brought for the recovery of any debt
contracted alter the premutation of this Act, for
spirituous liquors sold, or furnished to any person.
by any licensed retail dealer in such liquors shall be
maintained In any court of this Kingdom.'"
Tbe case before the Court was one in which the
parlies hid had dealings together for a considerable
length of time as landlord and tenant, and at tbe
death of the latter, and the settlement of bis estate,
the accounts shewed a balance against the landlord,
for sundries furnished him by tbe tenant, who was
a licensed retail dealer in spirituous liquors. The
former pleaded tbe above, quoted statute In bar ot
the claim. We give in brief the arguments of coun
After the arguments, the article is wound np
with the following sentence : The Court, after
hearing the foregoing arguments, and the author
ities cited by counsel, took the case under advise
ment.'' I now ask, is not this account presented as the
entire statement of tbe casa? Is it not intended
to be so understood ? Has it not been so under
stood! In fact, it is nothing like it; if there is
" no suppression of truth, or suggestion of false
hood, then it is a downright ratification or the
whole matter; the plaintiff in this case was not
the administrators cf the Estate bnt, the land
lord of the house, himself rormerlr a retailer or
spirits; be did XOT. as we are told above, plead
tbe above quoted statute in bar or the claim Tor
the balance or accounts against him, bet he was
bold enough to institute the sail against the ex
ecutors, in order to evade taking into accout any
part or the sam amounting to more than 81,400
which be had received in payment of the rent teey,
in view or the above quoted lair, having Viem
sclres proposed' to abandon the bahnce due by
him to tie Estate, and to compel tbem to pay
him S7 17, nearly, or quite double the amount of
which he bad already received during the lifetime
of tbe person whose Estate was being adminis
tered.' I challenge contradiction.
It remains only to say. that I can congratulate
the proprietors or the Commercial Adcertietr
for tbe force of their'argumehts against an oppo
nent, to no greater a degree than for the sound
ness of their information on public matters, and
to assure them that their compliments are thor
ouzbly appreciated, but will not be further
