in the American Senate ants tvry rncDttrniiinff.
It was to have come up in that body on the
17th of March, and its discussion mirht last
two or three days. So that, as far as the Sen
ate is concerned, it was probably decided by
the 20th. Every American newspaper which
has come under our notice, and every cor-
responili'lit when alludmi; to It, favor its
passage ; which streiiirthvitB tlio hope that
it has been approved. A very important
modification has lieen made in it, namely,
an additional article "providing that the same
terms shall not le pven to any other nation to
acquire any naval or coaling station within
these islands." This w ill render the treaty even
more popular with the native Hawaiians than
it now is, though with all classes here, it is
extremely popular.

Sf-vkral of our suliseriliors have spoken to
us regarding the discussion between the two
principal papers on matters ertaiiiiiig to the
treaty and statements in connection w ith it, as
more likely to injure than benefit it. While
admitting the force of the remarks made, we
do not think it our duty, for such reason,
to remain silent, when those hostile to a nicas.
tire of great national importance choose to
revive arguments designed and calculated to
defeat it. There are persons in our midst who
would to-day rejoice to see the treaty defeated,
the prospects of all industrious classes here in
jured, and the government involved in ruin. It
is of such that the press should not lie slow to
speak, and it was to show wiio are the false
friends of the Hawaiian people, that we ex
isosed them, and shall hold ourselves ready to
do it again when occasion calls for it.

Tuk Btoainer Mikado, on her arrival off this
port, on Saturday morning last, was found to
have several cases of measles among the pas
sengers on board. The port physician, Dr. 0.
Trousseau, immediately went off to the vessel
and made an examination, finding eleven pa
tients, mostly children, attacked with the dis
ease, which was confined to the steerage. The
ship was then allowed by the physician to en
ter the port, and she was anchored in the mid
dle of the inner harbor, but did not come to
the wharf, and her passengers were forbidden
to come ashore. The mails, freight for this
port, and one passenger wen; allowed to bo
landed. Freight was also sent off, and the
steamer left at 8 o'clock in the evening. Mea
sles are not generally considered a contagious
disease, and therefore vessels having it on
board arc not subject to quarantine regulations
in most European and American ports, though
special care is taken of any who may have the
disease. The measles have been here for the
ast twenty-seven years, and cases are occa
sionally found. Like most new diseases, when
first introduced into any country, it proved in
1848 very fatal to the native population; but
once hax-ing spent itself, and becoming, as it
were, acclimatized, tin's malady, like the small
pox, whooping cough, Panama fever, influenza
and other epidemics which wo have had, has
lost its virulence, and need excite no alarm.
Small-pox is an exception, and is more likely
to spread and prove fatal in cx-cry country
where introduced.

Mahrhal MacMaito?!, President of the
French Republic, has succeeded in forming a
strong Cabinet, at the head of which are M.
Buffet, Minister of the Interior, and Dufaure,
Minister of Justice. Whether it would not
have been stronger and more acceptable to the
Legislative Assembly, had the Duke d'Audif-
fret, who is a firm Republican, been assigned
a seat in it, is not clear. But MacMahon wonld
not listen to the proposition, which was strong
ly urged by tho Duke's party, and that settled
the question. On appearing lieforc the Assem
bly, M. Buffet, on behalf of the Cabinet, stated
that " its policy would bo distinctively conser
vative. This statement is made, he said, to
reassure the industrious and orderly popula
tion. The Government renews, confidently,
the President's apjieal for the support of mod
erate men of all parties." Buffet continued :
" We have the greatest confidence in the expe
rience of the administrative staff, who may rely
upon our constant support. It will be tho duty
of the Cabinet to secure obedience and respect
for constitutional laws, and wo are resolved to
uphold them against all intrigues; bnt shall
never pursue a vindictive policy. Finn but
conciliatory conduct is alone suitable to the
state of things prodnced by onr misfortunes.
Would we not strike a last blow against tho
power of France, if we exhibited to the world
a spectacle of internal dissension ? the Gov
ernment will lie nnable to raise the state of
siege until the press laws are modified, and a
bill in this connection will be submitted." The
declaration asks that the present law regard
ing the appointment of Mayors be continued
for a stated period, and concluded by challeng
ing a vote of want of confidence. The declar
ation was received with no manifestations of
cither satisfaction or dissent. The Left was
at first irritated at the omission of all mention'
of Republicans, and at the passages concerning
public functionaries, and the raising of the
state of siege. At a meeting of the Bureaux,
Gambetta said tho promise to prevent factious
intrigues was an essential feature of the pro
gramme, and he argued that the new Govern
ment be judged by its acts only."

The Pacific Ocean Telegraph.
Among the bills before Congress, whic!
failed to pass at the late session, for want o
time, was that granting privileges to the com
pany which proposes to build a telegraph be
tween San Francisco and Japan via Honolulu
There can lie no doubt but it will pass at the
next session, when work on the telegraph w ill
at once commence, and its completion will be
only a question of time.
In the American Artisan for January, w
find an interesting article on Ocean Cables, i
which a list is given of all that have been laid
their length and other details, showing that
over 20,000 miles of cables have been laid
since It50, from which year ocean telegraphy
dates. The article referred to contains much
of interest to us, and w e transfer a portion of it
to our columns :
" The honor of ln;ing the original projector
of ocean cables belongs to onr country, in the
jicrson of Cyrus W. Field, to whom Congress
in December, 1800, voted their thanks, and
authorized a gold medal to be struck and pre
sentotl to him in the name of the people of the
United States. The Grand Prize of the Inter
national Exiiosition at Paris in 1807 was also
aw arded to him as " the promoter of tho sys
tem of ocean telegraphy.
" The history of the world produces but few
instances of greater energy, of more untiring
exertions, and of more unbounded faith in the
feasibility of the scheme for connecting tele
graphically the Old and Xow World, than were
exhibited by Mr. Field, through the long pe
riod of thirteen years, during which, in spite
of every olnstacle and discouragement, he kept
on liis course unfalteringly, each successive
disappointment only serving to infuse into him
fresh energy and a determination to surmount
every obstruction that lay in his path.
" We have not space in this article to recite
the successive steps that were taken by Mr.
Field to accomplish the object eventually at
tained by the final laying and successful work
ing of the two Atlantic cable9 in 1806, and the
results that followed. Suffice it to say that
from the year 1858, when the first ocean cable
united for a short time the two hemispheres,
the attention of capitalists was directed to the
subject, and schemes were introduced with the
view of connecting the British Isles with their
outlying dependencies in Europe and Asia, al
though it was not until the year 1870 that the
different sections were completed, and direct
telegraphic communication was established
between England, India, Singapore, and Bata-
via, and during 1871 extended to China, Japan,
and Australia. Other projects had in view the
laying of lines between England and her imme
diate Continental neighliors.
" To complete the ' girdle round the earth'
a cable must lc laid across the Pacific Ocean,
and when this is accomplished tho dream of
Mr. Field's life will lie realized.
" The first step towards forming a company
for this purpose was token by that gentleman
in the presentation of a memorial to Congress
on the 31st of March, 1 670, praying it to incor
porate a company, possessing a capital of ten
millions of dollars in gold, " with a power to
construct an oceanic cable between California
and Japan and China," and soliciting a grant
of land in aid of the undertaking. A bill to
that effect was introduced into the Senate on
tbe 31st of May of that year, but failed of pas
sage before Congress adjourned. Certain ob
stacles afterwards intervening, it was thought
advisable to delay the scheme till the proper
course of the cable could be finally deter
mined ; and, on the application of Mr. Field,
an act was passed authorizing the Secretary of
the Navy to employ the vessels of the Cnitcd
States to take soundings. This service has
just been completed, and the project will now
be pressed forward as soon as funds can be
obtained.
When this line of telegraph is laid, its length
between the terminal points, namely, 8an
Francisco and Yokohama, will be 5,573 nautical
miles. The cable will, however, be divided
into three sections from San Francisco to
Honolulu, 2,093 miles ; from Honolulu to Mid-
Way Island, 1,220; and from Midway Island
to Yokohama, 2,260 miles.
Several other cables are projected, but not
yet contracted for ; amongst them the following:
At the request of His Majesty, through His
Excellency W, I., liroon, a number of gvntlo-
mcu, 11 si, 1, His o Honolulu, mot at tho Kttom
of tho National Museum in Aliiolani Halo, at
11 o'clock, tn Friday last, for the purpose of
taking slope preliminary to the organising of a
Microacopical Society.
Tho following persons were present : Their
Excellencies W. h. Green, W. h. Mochomia,
J. S. Walker; Messrs. C. R. Bishop, K, H.
Boyd, a II. Ju.ld, EL M. Whitney, Dr. llark
ness, of San Francisco, Dr. G. Trousseau, T.
EL Davies, F. A. Schaefer, W. W. Hill, t 11.
Derby, T. G. Thrum, A. Herbert, J. Mont
gomery, ami C. J. Lyons.
I'pon motion of Hon. C R. Bishop, His Ex.
W. L. Green was called to the Chair, and C. J.
Lyons appointed Secretary.
The Chairman stated that His Majesty the
King had fully intended to he present at this
meeting, mid was only prevented by indispo
sition. That it was at his especial suggestion
that this movement had been undertaken, ami
he earnestly desired that something of the
nature of a scientific association should lie in
augurated for the licncfit as well as pleasure
of those who might join. That by menus of
forming such an association many persons w ho
had not the means to procure costly instru
ments could nevertheless have an opportunity
for study, nnd even for making valuable dis
coveries. That he had been surprised at his
own success in circulating a subscription pa
per, the sum pledged already exceeding SSO0.
Dr. Harkness of San Francisco, being called
ujon, then made interesting remarks in en
couragement of the enterprise, and went on at
some length to inform the members from his
own experience of the instruments which such
an association would find most serviceable.
He recommended Beck's manufacture, of Lon
don, and in particular a binocular microscope,
with objectives from 2 inch down to g inch
focus, with polariscopo, iris diaphragm, para
bolic condenser, illuminator, etc. A catalogue
published by Queen of New York, American
agent for Beck, was produced by one of tho
members, and a good microscope, also by
Queen, nnd owned by a gentleman of this
town, added to tho particularity nnd interest
of the remarks of the Hjieaker.
Upon motion of tho Hon. C. R. Bishop, a
committee was then appointed, of whom His
Ex. W. L. Green was to bo one, to consult with
Dr. Harkness, antl decide what microscope and
adjuncts it was best to procure, and to order
the same, not to exceed the sum of S600.
By additional motion tho Committee was
also to select books for study and instruction,
and order accordingly ; not to exceed tho sum
of S600. Dr. 0. Tronsseau and Mr. C. J.
Lyons wore appointed the remaining members
of the Committee.
Mr. T. H. Davies stingested a moro formal
organization for the purpose of collecting and
disseminating scientific information on matters
relating to these islands, and upon motion and
nomination by tho above named gentleman,
W. L. Green, Dr. Troussean, and A. J. Cart-
wright were appointed to draw up a prospec
tus embodying tho name anil natnrc of snch
an association, to rciwrt at another meeting.
The name of the Secretary was also added to
the Committee. Dr. Harkness suggested the
title "Microscopical and Natural History
Society."
Mr. F. A. Schaefer then moved the thanks
of the meeting to Dr. Harkness for his kind
ness in attending and rendering valuable as
sistance to the enterprise. Mr. T. H. Davies
moved that Dr. Harkness be made an honorary
member. Voted unanimously.
Dr. Harkness in reply stated that we had no
idea of what valuable discoveries this society
might be tho parent. He had found the most
magnificent diatoms in the deposit from tho
Punahou Spring ; also new species of conferral
and these specimens could not possibly be sent
abroadr He now made the society its first do
nation of a specimen of the Red Snow animal
culse, protococcus nivalis, from Nevada.
Adjourned indefinitely upon call of Chairman.
Iiaiory Before tho V. 8. steamer Swstanv, which
ivnvoted to Australia the American Transit of
Venus wrty, left MolK'tirno for the I'nitod
States, the Mayor of that city entertained tho
officers of the ship ami the inemls'rs of tho as
tronomical corps at a lunch on tho 31th of
February. Front tho account given in the Mel
Untrue .-IryNs, it appe.im to have Ixvu 11 very
pleasant affair, ami tho apee-ohoa made by the
Mayor, who proposed the health of tho Qncn
of England and tho President of the I'nitod
States, as well as the resMnsoa by Consul
Adanison, Capt. Chitndlar, and Prof. Harkness,
show a cordial international feeling. We have
room only for Mr. Adamaon'f remarks, w liieh
abound with his usual happy sentiments and
goil humor, nnd will Ih road with interest by
his many persona! friends in these islands :
"Mr. T. MMMM (American consul) also replied.
He said that all those present were aware that his
countrymen, some people said, wen-given to brag
ging. That wss not the case with Victorians, al
though It bad been said by a well-known author
and recent visitor that 'blowing' was a feature
here. (Cheers and laughter.) While the major had
perhaps overstated the case when lie had referred
to tho Americans, there was still some trulh In Ills
remarks, and he (Mr. Adanison) would be sorry to
think that his countrymen bud iu any way brought
disgrace upon tho great and glorious nation from
which they sprang. Whatever piques or petty
Jealousies might exist between tho two nations, he
had received abundant evidence of the kindly feel
ing that existed In Victoria towarda the United
States. He did not look upon himself as a foreigner
in Melbourne, and he was in a somewhat anomalous
position when he was put forward us the represent
ative of another nation, more espccislly ss tbe se
ductions of tho colony hod led tho majority of his
countrymen to renounce their allegiance, and had
only loft blm one or two constituents. (Lsnghter.)
Ho was very much afraid that he himself would be
seduced, but ho hoped that his virtue would with
stand any attempt that might be made against blm.
Joking apart, however, be might say that while In
his chambers in Market-buildings he was the repre
sentative of the Cnited Slates, when he left there he
considered himself a Victorian. (Cheers.) He was
so much a Victorian that he had even been ap
proaching a Minister of the Crown with reference
to a proposed ship canal, bnt while admitting that,
he hoped none present would resent such foreign
interference on his part. (Cheers.) Ho was de
lighted to sec that tbc Fiji Islanda bad been annexed
ss a colony by tbe British Government, and he
could ussure Victorians that bia couutryraen were
not iu the least afraid that they were getting too
powerful. (Laughter.) They had a feeling that tbe
Anglo-Saxon race was bound to dominate the world.
They all spoke the same tongue, although he must
ssy that his countrymen were doing what little they
could to improve it. (Cheers and laughtdr.) And
if tho Australiana chose to annex all tbe islands In
the South Seas, it wnuld pcrhas be an advantage,
especially If It forwarded the work of civilization.
In conclusion, bo would sav, that ho wonld alwav
remember tbc kindness and hospitality be bad re
ceived here, and would always wish well to Anstra
lis In general, and Victoria In particular. He would
like with the permission of tbe mayor, to propose
t rospciuy iu uic tity or .vieiuonrmv (yjueers.)

Among the passengers by the Mikado, en
route for England, was tho Hon. Wm. Fox,
who for many years has been a leading poli
tician in New Zealand, and for some time a
member of the Vogel administration. He is
also well known as a strong temperance advo
cate and a member of the Good Templar fra
ternity. Prior to his departure from Auckland,
he made a stirring address on politics, tem
perance, etc., which is printed in the papers of
that city. From a criticism of it in the Times,
we copy the following. It will be observed
that that paper does not coincide with him :
" Mr. Fox in vigorous terms upbraided the
clergy Christian Churches because they have
not thrown themselves into his grand crusade.
But this should not excite surprise when it is
known how little Mr. Fox himself succeeded
in making clear the scope and purposes of tho
movement. In the earlier part of the speech
it was the advocate of a permissive bill to
whom we were listening. As he advanced and
and his fervor grew stronger, the permissive
bill and its principles were forgotten and the
rigid prohibitory law of tho United States
Good Templars was held up as the model to be
adopted in unr legislation. Statistics were
quoted in behalf of this view, bnt, as we have
before confessed, onr belief in extempore sta
tistical conclusions is never very strong, and
least of all when they are applied in support
of foregone conclusions. Mr. Fox tells ns that
they are 600,000 habitual drunkards in the
United Kingdom and that one-tenth of these
die annually from this cause. These terrible
statistics were given with bated breath and
terrified countenance, and were very effective
from an oratorical point of view. But a mo
ment's consideration shows they aak us to be
lieve that one oat of every fifty of the men,
women and children in the United Kingdom
is a habitual drunkard a statistical conclu
sion at which common sense rebels. The same
carefully compiled statistics were applied to
onr own colony. The methods of calculation
were artistically described by Mr. Fox but his
A correspondent of the Australasian gives
tho following short but graphic sketch of tho
progress of this enterprising colony :
" Its fine harbors, its gorgeous scenery, its
fertile valleys, its prosperous townships, each
with a peculiar charm of its own, live in the
memory ; ns does also the conviction that tho
country is making, through its natural gifts and
its present Vogellian policy, gigantic strides in
civilization. Whether it will permanently main
tain its position or not, remains to be Been.
There arc many, both in the colony and out of
it, who prognosticate evil days when the rail
Wuy loan is all spent and the empfoiees are
thrown out of their work. But the country has
vitality enough to survive more than one crisis
Its wonderful natural resources, combined with
cnorgy on tho part of its people, and a climate
inferior to none in the world, are bound to
make it, in tho end, a highly prosperous nation ;
and so will be brought about one factor, at least,
towards the fulfilment of Macaulcy's dream.
We may add that there has been a Government
immigration of upwards of 50,000 persons, that
a very small proportion of them is employed on
the public works, that even now contractors do
not find enough labor to meet their require
ments, and have been advertising for consider
able bodies of men, while the farmers in Wai-
kato find the men so scarce that many aro em
ploying Maori labor. Let crises come, as
come they will in the history of every country.
Let wool fall in price, as probably it may, for
it has dono so before now, and will again. Let
agricultural produce exceed tho requirements
of onr own consumption, which, as yet, it has
not done ; for the exports of wheat from Can
terbury and Otago have been more than counter
balanced by importations of agricultural pro
ducts from other colonies. Let all this happen.
let tightness in tho money markot follow, and
there have been signs of a financial crisis, we
do not fear for the future."
