leader of the Advertiser of last week,
wherein the Editor put on an air of " in
jured innocence" -which -was quite pitiful
to behold. "We are quite grieved to think
that we should have injured his feelings
to the extent wc seem to have done by
the mere intimation that his ridiculous
article on' wood " seemed" to bo written by
some one connected with the lumber
trade, and though we could not think it
was really the case, at least thote engaged
in that trade should remunerate him for
his efforts in their behalf. "We never
pointed out whom we supposed to be the
author of the article in question. Indeed,
if we had, we should certainly have
pointed to the Editor himself, although,
if pressed for a further opinion on the
subject, wc should most certainly have
said that our opinion of the Editor's good
sense would not permit us to believe that
be had any very deep conviction or feel
ing for the side of the discussion which
he had taken up; but had rather takeu
the course which he had for the sake oi:
the argument, or for opposition a course
for which that paper has been so long
celebrated, that it appears the present

to get out of the track. It is to be hoed
that in time the- will be able to leave
the old groove, in order that the gen

what they feel to be for the public good.
Another thing : "We do not pretend to be

Is 1S56-7 a public road was laid out by the
aithoriues of Maui, from Wailcapu Church to

Tieiaity. At that time the hods were waste and

and inclosed them with stone or wire fences.
The deeds of conveyance made no mention of
this road, and its public cse became somewhat
irregular for want of repairs. Finally, in 1863,
the road was closed by Mr. Cornwall, who erected
a wire fence across the end where it entered the
Wailuka road. The Minister of the Interior
thereupon ordered the Deputy-Sheriff of Maui to
remove this obstruction, but the counsel of Mr.
CorcweH obtained from the Chancellor a tempo
rary injunction forbidding the Deputy-Sheriff to
interfere. The next step wo3 a complaint for
pebKc nuisance brought against Mr. Cornwell
before the District Magistrate, who found him
guilty of the charge. On appeal to the Circuit
Oocrt at Labaiaa, this judgment was affirmed.
Several exceptions were taken to the Snpreme
Court, in which the foHcxing were the main
points : The jury panel bad not been drawn in
Honolulu at the time the law directs, and on
challenge to the array bad been quashed, tales
men beioc called to try the cause. A new trial
was ordered on the ground that the talesmen
were irr?g3larly called, the panel being deemed a
legal one. The next trial, at the December term
of 1S69, brought the same result, of a verdict
against the defendant, and judgment of $25 and
costs wa3 pronounced. Exceptions to the Su
preme Court were again taken, this time on the
grounds that the panel was not drawn in Hono
lulu from the list furnished by the Governor and
Circuit Judge of Maui in September, as the law
directs, but from a subsequent list, and that there
was not legal and sufficient evidence that Now
line dedicated bis land for the highway. The
counsel for the defendant claiming a hearing by
the fall Court, the argument was deferred until
the lost January term, when the case was argued
and submitted. The Court bos over-ruled the
exceptions and affirmed the previous judgment.
Since thi3 judgment was rendered, the injunction
referred to has been dissolved. Messrs. Stanley
and Jones were the defendant's counsel.
Flcndiuli Cruelly to AniiunI.
There is nothing which should so much lower
a man in the estimation of his fellows, as delib
erate cruelty to animals. We see frequently,
persons who either from false motives of economy,
or from other motives, if anything, more worthy
of condemnation, using animals whose meagre ap
pearance and evidently half starved condition
should bring shame to the cheek of their owners.
"When a merciful man sees another driving a horse
or ox whose condition i3 thus miserable, he can
hardly refrain from the reflection that such per
son is unworthy the ownership of the poor brute
which be is willing to use to the full extent of its
little strength, but i3 too mean to feed it sufficient
to make it3 existence anything but miserable. So
the wretch who to make money oat of the pro
dace or labor of the parent animal, will deprive
the young of the sustenance which nature pro
vides for it, deserves public condemnation and all
the punishment which the violated law can inflict
upon nun. X none opinion 19 ngnuy uuirageu
against such creatures, and we have never known
one who has so offended to have even the individ
ual sympathy of any one. Most men abhor and
condemn snch treatment of the brute creation,
only less than they.do similar treatment of .JLheir
fellows. . .
Notwithstanding this, there are many, instiga
ted by rapidity, natural brutality, or from insensi
bility to the welfare of their domestic animals.
who treat then in a manner which 19 scamelul, in

Bat, we never jsaspectod until reading a commu
nication in the Advertiser of lost Saturday, that
snch inhnm&n bmtality.was confined here, to one
nationality. We had'before thought that there
were among the natives of all countries, merciful
men who take core of the health and comfort of
their domestic animals, as well 03 those of all na
tionalties who from neglect or avarice will let
them suffer and starve. We therefore wondered
that any man could be found who would deliber
ately accuse the people of one nationality as a
whole of practicing deliberate cruelty to animals,
and still more that any nengpaper could be found
to give publicity to such a general charge. -If a
Portuguese in Jlanoa Valley has been guilty of
the criminal cruelty to animals, charged by the
correspondent of the Advertiser, hold him op to
public execration, and punish him if you can, but
d"S not attempt to bring disgrace upon bis coun
trymen for the misdeeds of one man. For our
part, we know very many Tery respectablo people
of that nation, both engaged in stock raising
and in other pursuits, whose horses and cattle for
apparent good condition show a humanity and
careful treatmeut equal to that of any other people.
Feox the New York Times, we take the fol
lowing statement of a novel mode of subsidizing
American steam lines, which was submitted to
the Committee on Commerce of the House of
Representatives in January last. As no notice
has been taken of the proposition in Congress,
it is probable that it did not meet the approval of
the Committee. The plan does not look like a
bad one however, as tho increased immigration
would, in the way of increasing labor and capital,
remunerate the country fur the grants to the steam
A novel plan for the establishment and en
courugement of American steam lines from onr
principal Atlantic seaports to Europe, was sub-
miueu to me House Committee on Commerce a
few days ago. It proposes to subsidize such lines
by granting a bounty on immigrants brought into
the country by their steam-ships. The number
of steamers is limited to eighty, of which at least
nity snail oe steamers built in tlie United States;
the remainimr thirtv mav be built or bought
abroad. To encourage the building of the steam
ers at home, and to provide a fiir compensation
for the extra costof building first-clas3iron steam
ships in the United States,.it is proposed to pay
the American built ships a bounty of S20 upon
every immigrant, and the foreign-built steamers,
registered as American, and owned, manaeed and
commanded by American citizens, 10 per ininii-
It is argued that, under this arrangement,
American ship-owners will bo able to enter at
once iuto successful competition with the power
ful British companies which nor monopolize the
trade between the United Slates and Ureal Brit
ain, and that American lines will be promptly or
ganized, building half their steamers in England
to save time aud the other half in the United
States, to secure the additional bounty. The
plan looks to the protection of both ship-owners
and ship-builders, and is proposed as a compromise
measure, which, it is thought, will be equitable to
both those interests, and end the antagonism
which now exists between them, to the serious
injury of the navigation interests of the country.
It is also intended to supersede the personal and
special subsidy bills which are now before Con
gress, and which seek to build up one or two
steam lines at the cost of the Government, and
for the exclusive benefit of the few favored indi
viduals who are soliciting the grant.
a strong argument in lavor of the proposed
system i3, that it favors no individual, clique, city
or section, but is open to nil American citizens
who may be prepared to take advantase of its
provisions. It will afford lie new Philadelphia
vjompany ine niu mat iney must nave in some
shape to save their enterprise from melancholy
failure. Under its influence Boston may start a
Liverpool steam line with more than areasonable
prospect of success ; and New York can estab
lish half a dozen profitable lines, provided her
ship-owners act promptly and in advance of the
ship-owners of other ports.
To the objection that a bounty upon steerage
passengers would tie a violation of our navigation
treaties with England, it i3 replied that England
has set us the example in subsidizing her steam
lines, and that in principal there 13 little differ
ence whether the subsidy is nominally paid for
mail service or for the encouragement of immi
gration, under which last heading it is proposed
10 grant me county.

Makawao, Madi, March 15, 1871.
Editor of Haxcaiian Gazette,
Deab Sib : In your paper of January IStb of
the present year, I read your article on "Horse-
feed," and noticed your allusion to Makawao a3 a
locality where "every body knows that excellent
wheat and oats have been raised and you add,
"nothing but the apathy and want of enterprise
of the people prevent our getting a full supply of
cheap and good food for animals from that locali
ty, and that too to the profit of the agricnlural
i3L" While I sympathise with you all at. Hon
olulu in your trials arising from the difficulty of
obtaining Bailable feed for your horses, and while
I mourn on account cf the apathy and want of
enterprise of too many of our people, which not
only deprire you oi oats, but deprive themselves
of what you would gladly give them in exchange
for cereals of all kinds, to wit, a fair compensa
tion in money ; I have something ti say in be
half of the people both natives and foreigners
who reside at Makawao, and who have been en
gaged many years in cultivating the soil. For
several years wheat growing occupied tho atten
tion of all classes, the hope being cherished that
an excellent article of Sour might be furnished
for common use, and wheat meal, fresh and sav
ory, for the comfort of invalids. Did I know
who introduced wheat into the Islands, I would
publicly thank him for his good will to the in
habitants of the group. I suppose a single hand
ful from the pocket of some visitor at Labaina
waj given to Mr. Richards, with the suggestion
that something might como of it- He gave it to
a native belonging to Kula, bidding him plant it
as he would an handful of cornjand in due time it
would produce its like. I do not think that Mr.
Richards or any one else beard of the Kula
wheat for several years. In the mean time I re
moved to If ilo where I labored about a year and
a half, when I came to Maui, where I have since
resided. While at Wailuku, a native from Kula
brought me a small Hingham box nearly full of
beautiful wheat, offering it for sale. I made
many inquiries of him concerning the grain,
whether he raised it, where he obtained the seed,
whether he bad more like it, and what use he
made of it. So long a time ha3 intervened since
this happened that I cannot recall his replies to
my questions. I told him the use we made of
wheat, and assured him that he woold do well to
return to Kula and plant more cf his seed. To
encourage him to do so, I purchased what he had
brought. This I believe is the origin of wheat
growing in Kula, One and another went into
the business on a very small scale, certainly, but
I soon obtained enough for family nse. On tak
ing up my residence at Makawao as a lelf-sup-
furnish me with' wheat. At thUjtinio there
was no means of harvesting the grain, nor
threshing, nor cleaning It, not eveuva sickle
nor a fan. At first they used a case knife for rf-
ting, a rough lava stone on which they rubbed out I
thegrain oizthreshing machine, and tbebreath 01
their mouth," for lieii fatrJnff mitfln this way
tho people of Kula furnished me Jth some ten
bushels of wheat annually during sveral years. I
had procured for their use sever sickles, and I
sent for, and obtained from the fnited States, a
small threshiag-machine and a Mning-mili, VTe
then felt strong. All who ha purchased lands
filled them with wheat. Fongners went into
the business ; hired lands of Givernment ; and all
engaged in the one great wot-of plowing, and
sowing the precious seed. 3lb. men and women
took hold of the work with ( will, the men per
forming the plswing and smtag. the women cut
ting and binding the grau vAen ripe. A striking
change was soon visible fron one end of on? field
toJlhe other. When ur Etlds were ripening for
the harvest, one was imply repaid for the fatigue
of climbing Fiiholo, hill sane six hundred feet
in height just ta the borderbf Makawao, whence
ho could see the greater pet of Kula, its fields
clad in golden wheat wavhg to the winds, and
promising a generous harrst ns tho reward of
industry. And when year jfter year the harvest
was gathered in, and the frut of toil sent down
to Kabului to be' shipped iC the metropolis, st
one time 20,003 bushels ; it mother, 30,000 ; and
at another still, I belie'e a3 many as -10,000
bushels for the year, to ly converted into flour,
need 1 say that uy"thoi;bts went back to the
Hingham bucket it) its few quarts of Kula
wheat which I pctnased of a native, thus en
couraging him andotbers to hold on to the work
of raising the precius grain, and filling the land
with the fruits o industry. I thought of the
" handful of corn ii the earth upon tho top of the
mountains," whise, fruit, it was predicted,
"shall shake like Lebmon." By anticipation, the
time seemed not very far distant when the ne
cessity of importinf flour into the Islands would
be superseded by to homo manufacture ef a bet
ter article than coild be obtained from abroad,
But wo have all sijnally failed, I am sorry to say.
of realizing the fuEllment of our hopes and an
ticipations. A fiw bushels were raised in 18C9
The yield was vey fair, and the grain of nn ex
cellent quality ; lut this, so far far as I can see,
closed the wheat-growing enterprise at Makawao
and vicinity. T.if causes of failure I will give
you, if spared, in mother paper.

of the 25tb to tie 29th on the battle-field. Re

noticed quite phinly the sign of the Knights of
St. John on bis armlet. Ho was about calling
oat to the man fir aid, when his voice failed him
at the view presmted to his eye. Tho man with

When these men arrived at the group they com

was found about their breasts, they examined

but were overtaken by the field-watch which
happened to approach at that moment."
