on the day originated. Amoo; tbe ancient relics
of pottery found in or near Rome is one preserved
in the British i!neara, on which is inscribed
A Happr New Tear to Yoo," in Latin. In the
early centuries of Christianity, emperors received
rifts on New Tear, and though ecclesiastical
councils condemned tbe custom, it has earvired
all opposition, and seems likely to last to the end
Tbeke seems to be a deep and wide-eprnad de
sire among the people that His Majestt should
name and proclaim His successor, as provided by
the constitution. This act would lend greatly
to remove a feeling of restless disquietude which
prevails throughout the country regarding the
succession, tbougb every one copes and prays
that our Sovereign may lire many years. No one
but be has now any pre-emptive claim to tbe
throne of Hawaii, and his choice must decide it-
His Majesty, no doubt, has bis preferencs.in this
matter, and should he name any one, we feel con
fident that his people will accept tbe nominee as
the lawful beir-apparent to the throne, and be
prepared to defend bis or her claims to it
The Ccstovs Statistics which we present on
the third page, showing tbe exports of domestic
produce for the year, exhibit a very favorable re
sult. Sugar shows a total of 23.129.101 pouuds
exported, a gain of over 6,000.000 of pounds as
compared with 1672. Rice and paddy give a to
tal export of 1.449.3S3 pounds. Coflee foots up
262,025 pounds ; wool, 329.507 pounds ; tallow,
603,855 pounds. The total exports for the year
have amounted in value to $1,661,407, an increase
of 315,822 over tbe previous. The receipts of
tbe customs for the year have been S253.9U.95,
a falling off of less than $5,000. Altogether the
loreign commerce oi me Kingdom presents a
more favorable balance sheet than was generally
anticipated. An increase of thirty-six per cent,
during one year, in the leading product of tbe
Kingdom, sugar, is a significant fact, and shows
the adaptedoess of our soil to that product.

fc,0a Sunday forenoon, a Sunday School exhl

occasion the church was decorated with flowers

a finer display of the kind than on this occasion.

Christ as the Rose of Sharon. A cross was pre
pared covered with a circle, on which appeared
the words "Jesus the Rose." As each letter
was brought np, a class repeated a verse or verses
of scripture applicable to it. At tbe conclusion
of the recitatioo and singing, tbe pastor, Rev.
W. Frear, delivered a short address appropriate
to the occasion.
Now, during onr rainy season, is tbe time to start
young trees, lor Iran or ornament or snaue.
Plant them around your hnuses, scatter tbe seeds
over the plains and along the roads and seashore,
Wherever no trees are found now, there start
them, for they will soon be a blessing to man and
beast, and serve to attract the rain clouds ns
they pass our islands. Especially let them be
planted around the school bouses, where, in tbe
future, the boys nod girls may enjoy their grate
ful shade. Nothing will grow more rapidly than
tbe samang or monkey pod, und no prettier shade
tree can be found anywhere. For tbe roadsido
also it is well adapted, as its limbs stretch out in
every direction fiom twenty to fifty feet, making
a dense shade. The trees should always bo plant
edjjust inside the fence, never outside or in the
road. The algaroba will grow in drier places and
with less care than the satnang, and in some lo
calities, is the belter of tbo two. For fuel it is
far superior, and a grove of twenty-five trees
will, in ten years from tbe seed supply a family
with all tbe wood they may need. The iron-wood
pioe tree is also a rapid grower, and furnishes a
very hard wood for timber or fuel. For fence
posts there i3 no better tree. A grove ot these

or two on tbe assertions therein made, which I

Tho first is, why the late Mioistsr of tbo In

reasons that operated upon bis mind, never bar
ing beard him state them, I still think 1 can im-

notices of goods offered at panic prices,
Sugar has declined to loner prises than at any
time for many years. Refined sugar, granulated,
brings only 10c a pound, and raw sugars at 6
to 7c Coffee keeps up. Rica is very dull, bring
ing C to 7c a pound. Yet there is throughout
tbo East a feeliog that trado will ere long resume
its wonted activity, bringing money again into
circulation and creating renewed prosperity.
Tho country has not been much affected by tbo
panic in. London, nor has this caused tbe ship
ment of coin from there to diminish.
A counter irritant to tho panic has been pro
duced by the seizure of tbe Virgioius, a vessel
flying' the American flag, by Spanish Cubans, and
the summary execution of many of her officers
and men without authority. It seems evident
that the Virginias was a vessel having on board
men and means to aid the rebellion in Cuba. She
was an American vessel, was discovered on the
high eeas, and chased within six miles of the
coast of Jamaica, where she was captured. Many
of ber crew and passengers were taken ashore,
led in squads of ten men to tho front of tlo
slaughter house wall, and there shot down in cold
blood, with no chance for defense, no chance fur
protest. Dispatches from Havana say that the
Cuban papers unite in commending the execu
ecute that it was almost impossible to carry out its
provisions, without becoming oppressive to inno
cent parties. Id the next place, the investiga
tion by the committee of tho Legislative As
sembly failed to prove its efficiency to such an ex
tent, that it was repealed by that body by a good
largo majority, and only failed to ba altogether
repealed by tbe withholding bf the King's signa
ture. And thirdly, the Legislative Assembly so
far sustained their repeal of tbe whole law, that
they declined to appropriate any money to have
These reasons, to my view, were sufficient justi
fication for the Minister in arresting it. But an
other reason still may bare bad its influence, and
that is, that tbo law is partial, and does not lay
the axo at tho root of tbe evil. And it may well
be questional whether any law that applies only
to females and not equally to males, will ever
meet tho case.
What a storm of indignation would be raised,
if tho law authorized the isolation of only females
in case of leprosy, cholera, smallpox and other
contagious diseases! But there would be pre
cisely as good reason for exempting males In
these cases, as in that of syphilis. Why not ?
Who can givo a reason ? How was tbe disease
originally introduced Into these Islands? - Was
it by males or females? The reason why there
was such a great and rapid increase of syphilis

With this day ends the old year 1873, and with
this number ends the 9th volume of tbe Gazette,
volume 10 commencing with our next issue. The
weeks, months and years slip by so swiftly that
the new months and years arrive before most
people are aware, and it is only the wide-awake
who are always prepared with everything ready
to greet the new comer. In closing the present
volume, we can assnre onr readers that so long as
we are connected witb the press, and health and
life are spared, we shall seek to lay before them
the world's current record of events in as Irutbful
and attractive forms as it is possible for as to do.
We are fully aware of the task before us, and of
the many imperfections attending the best con
ceived intentions, and therefore ask the indul
gence as well as the assistance of all who can aid
in making our paper what it ought to be a Der-
fect mirror of current events.
A word to the wise : those who pay for the
Gazette ia advance, or before a bill is presented
to them, can have it for Five Dollars, as per
notice elsewhere. Where tbe paper is charged,
and bills sent out for collection, the price will be,
as formerly, Six Dollars a year.

In anticipation of the resumption of the Aus
tralian and California steam lioe, Mr. Herbert,
proprietor of tbe Hotel, proposes to issue a Tra
veler's Guide Book, giving a full description of
the principal places of interest in this group,
with such information as will make it valuable
to tourists and others. This book will comprise
at least 100 pages and be illustrated with pictures
engrared especially for it. It will be edited by
Mr. H. M. Whitney, rod published by Mr. A.
Herbert. A few pages will be devoted to ad
Tertisements, and we are confident it will prore
one of the most valuable mediums to be found in
this part of the world for -that purpose. As no
expense will be spared to make it what it should
be, a full and perfect guide book to all parts of
these islands, and as the expense attending its
preparation and publication will be considerable,
we trust that our business men will liberally aid
the enterprise with their patronage.

Notwithstanding the old superstition that ad
heres to Christmas occurring on Thursday, tbe
day was a charming one, just cool enoogh to re
mind every one that snow and ice exist m colder
latitudes, and that, while the snn shines here on
Christmas, snowstorms may be raging in the old
countries. As usual, the religions festivities
opened at tbe Human Catholic Cathedral on tbe
evening previous, with the gaudy and time honor
ed decorations which accompany tbe imposing
ceremony of High Mass. Oa this occasion the
singing and chanting was very fine, ond the ser
vices were, as they always are, attractive and im
pressive. At St. Andrew's Cathedral on Christmas ever
the osual Wednesday evening service was held,
when the Bishop preached a sermon appropriate
to the occasion, and Christmas carols were snog.
Tbe church was decorated with flowers and
wreaths, the font especially being very tastefully
adorned ; and in the chancel were mottoes, "Unto
us a child is born," " Unto us a son is giren."
On Christmas day a choral celebration of lho
Holy Communion took place at half past seven
in tbe moining, when a large number of nativo
and foreign communicants were present. Morn
ing prayers were read at eleven o'clock, when
Christmas hymns were sung, and the Bishop
preached. Evening prayers were read at half
past seven o'clock. On Sunday morning the
Ber. Alex. Mackintosh preached, and on Sunday
evening tbe Ber. Wm. Colder. The offertories
on Christmas day and oa the folloTing Sunday,
amounting in all to about one hundred dollars,
were applied to tbe support of two children at
the Sisters' School, Lahaina.
At Eawaiabao Cbarcb, services in tbe Ha-wai-
tan wete held by Uer. H. H. Parker, who
preached an impressive and instructive sermon on
the birth of Christ. A VPTV nttrartirn nm-

for a Confederate privateer. She was subse
quently sold to the Peruvian government, but in
1&C5 was embargoed by the Spanish Minister at
tbe Court of St. James, and the British authori
ties, dreading another Alabama, refused to let ber
proceed to sea. This was shortly before the cap-
lure of tbe China guano islands, off the coast of
Peru, when Spain obtained $3,000,000 indemnity
from Peru. The Tornado mounts 10 guns, and
is about the size of the Albaama, viz : 1.-100 to
1,500 tons. She has ncrewof about 200 men. She
is nn iron vessel, bark rigged, and is reputed to
bo very swift.

European Convention, which met at Vienna in
September to discuss lho subject of Trees and

tention and thought on tbo part of leading nion of
Europe and America. That something must soon
be t'oce here, by Legislative action, to arrest the
destruction of oar forests, is very clear. But how
to proceed to accomplish this object, nnd at the

enterprise but success. The Journal is well filled
with a choice variety of reading matter, among
which we notice a letter from Gen. S. C. Arm
strong, which will recall to many the earlier days
of I'nnahou. We should hardly have printed
without a protest, that paragraph of the General's
letter which advises our boys to look to America
as their field of labor. No, young men, all who

which England has ever had. It is only a few
years since the law prohibiting Jews from bold

that date a Jew has been prime minister, and

France and Austria. In Australia the present
postmaster-general of New South Wales, Mr.
Samuels, who has carried on the negotiations for
the new steam enterprise to a successful termina
tion, is a Jew ; and Mr. Vogel, the prime minis
ter of New Zealand, is also said to be of Jewish
extraction. The day has passed by when pro
scription for religion's sake can bo successfully
upheld. Talent and ability will be called into
active service, no matter what nationality may be
tbe possessor nf tliera.

THE FIXAXCIAL SITOATIO.V.
This has continued to be tbe topic of creat
interest the past month, and tbe prospect seems
brighter than before. Secretary of tbe Treasury
Richardson thought he bad discovered a way to
assist the resumption of specie payment, and
kept tho mints running night and day to coin
silver to enable bim to pay it out instead of cur
rency, in amounts of less than fire dollars. Thus
gradually he proposed to get silver into circula
tion in place of currency, but his project has been
slopped by the prospective needs of tbe govern
ment in case of war with Spain because of tbe
Virginius trouble. Money is still rery scarce,
and mills throughout the East are running on
part timt. Old goods must be worked off at low
prices and sacrifices made, before a healthy trade
will spring op again. By far the mo3t prominent
failure, since I last wrote yon, is that of A. & W.
Sprague,lhe Bbode Island manufacturers, accom
panied by the suspension of their New York
house. The cause or this was their inability to
realize ready money to meet their liabilities.
Their aaeta amounted to 19,000,000, h bile their i

fully otherwise. The British Consul also made
an ineffectual protest against tbe action. What
our government wili do is not yet known. Let
ters and telegrams to various members of the
administration have been received almost unani
mously recommending a war policy, and volun
teers hare been tendered. It is evident that there
were American citizens on board tbe vessel from
appeals made to tho Department of State, one of
which reads ns follows : " I bad a son on the
Virginius. For God's sake save his life." Tho
offer of one million dollars by one of those exe
cuted was treated with contempt. It is reported
that the Secretary of War said to a friend, who
called on hiui Saturday Nov. 15, " Tou ore aware
that I have been considered somewhat blood
thirsty on this matter, but the entire cabinet are
now of my mind. At the cabinet meeting held
yesterday, we were a unit, and if tho American
people are not saiisned witb l&e measures re
solved upon at that meeting, they must bo rery
hard to please." At tho navy yards all is bustle
and excitement. Orders have been received at
Charleston, Norfolk and Brooklyn to get the
vessels ready fur service as speedily as possible.
There wa3 nearly one million dollars drawn nt
the Treasury in ono day to tho credit of naval
disbursing officers on tho Eastern coast to meet
emergencies in fitting outvessels.nnd our govern
ment is preparing to enforce her demands in case
Spain fails to comply. It has never been ac
knowledged by Spain or our own country that
Cuba was in a state of war, and hence tho Vir
ginius cannot be treated as a Hostile vessel. Tbe
Castelar government is known to be friendly to
our own, and the matter may bo settled without
To go back to internal affairs once more let ns

great measure to the liquor question and the
Butler imbroglio. The new Legislature is strong
ly republican, yet has a much larger opposition
than hitherto. Gen. Banks who suffered defeat
in the contest last year as a candldato for Con
gress, is this year elected a member of the State
Senate. New York went democratic by a ma
jority of 35,000. The right of bolting has been
plainly asserted in tbe election of many indepen

form, ,tc These have not been carried out. It
was n;;erted by many that if Greeley were chosen
President a financial panic would ensue. Tbe
panic ia upon ns, and it is the misfortune rather
than tbe fault of the Republican party. For their
opponents charged it upon them, and gained
many vote3 thereby.' Again, thinking that they
could carry their candidates whoinsover thev
might be, tbey put in nomination many men un
fit for office, and were thereby defeated. Office
holders too have been allowed far too much li
cense in controlling local politics. But tbe great
est cause for defeat lies in the salary grab action.
Tbe people are not slow to forget, and tbey well
remember that millions of dollars of their money
were stolen last Congress. Thij again is the mis
fortune of tbe party in power; for Ibis vote was
carried by a greater proportion of Democratic
than Republican votes, but tbe outsiders think
only of tbe fact that there was a larger number
of Republicans in Congress than Democrats. If
the Republicans will learn the lessons, to be faith
ful to their promises, to put good men tn nomi
nation, and not to stay away from the polls, they
will gain onccess, otherwise not.
