A COBBKSPONDENT, who appears tO 1C
posted almut what he writes, calls attention
to the fact that the Board of Health, as now
composed, is an illegal body, because not cuu
stituted in accordance with the law, whicli re
quires that it consist of three instead of five
members. The point appears to be well taken,
as the following is the law bearing on the
" There eball be appointed by the Else In Privy
Council, upon tbc nomination ot the Miuirtcr of the
Interior, board of health for the Kingdom, axuut
tng fj (Arte jjensosu, wbo shall acrve during the
King t pleasure, and be charged with the general
oversight and care ot the public healtu." irnol
Code, tp. C9; ike L
The above section corresponds with section
2 1 8 of the Civil Code, word tor word. Now if
the board is illegally constituted, the error
should at once be rectified. Our corresRHi
dent states that the board consisted under the
previous administration of but three members,
and by referring to the calendar for 1t73, we
find it was the case. Why the change has
been made it- in : clear, and tin- number of
members in the board now evidently is not in
conformity with the law, as quoted above.
The recent action of the Board of Health, in
its efforts to suppress the selling of medi
cines without license, has naturally created
considerable feeling in the community, more
especially as the parties against whom its ac
tion is aimed have the confidence of the natives
and the sympathy of a large part of the foreign
population. One of them Rev. Dr. Lowell
Smith has practiced among the natives for
some forty years, and probably understands
their complaints sufficiently well to enable him
to treat most cases which come to him as well
as regularly-educated practitioners. At loast
so thought Dr. F. W. Hutchison, wbo fre
quently admitted that he was a safe and use
ful adviser of the natives in their ordinary ills.
The American missionaries, from the time they
first arrived here in 1820, have acted as medi
cal advisers to the natives, and still do it, even
if they have to do it gratuitously. This is per
fectly right and proper, and their advice and
medicines no doubt have, in many instances, re
stored health to the suffering and poor aborigi
nes, who with all that has been and is being
done for them are rapidly wasting away. If
the only point involved is the right to sell
medicines without a license, then the friends
of the parties persecuted no doubt stand ready
to contribute the sum needed. But when the
issue is that of suppressing the labor of those
who are prompted in their course chiefly by
benevolent impulses, no arbitrary acts should
be permitted to prevail. The entire native and
foreign population will be a unit on this point.
A Plastkb desires us to again urge the
importation of laborers, and states that if he
had fifty more men his sugar crop could be
doubled at once. We think that the adminis
tration is fully alive to this important matter
of more labor, and find on inquiry that it is
making special efforts to procure them. In
structions have been given to the Hawaiian
Consul at Hong Kong, guaranteeing twenty-
five dollars passage money for every able
bodied Chinese immigrant landed here, by
any sailing vessels. Also an offer has been
made to the Pacific Mail Company to pay the
passage of one hundred Chinese or Japanese
immigrants landed at this port, monthly.
by their steamers, at the above-named rate,
say 1200 laborers per annum, to include women
and children, under certain conditions specified
in detail. This action shows that the ad
ministration is not passive in the matter.
Still these laborers are needed here note
and cannot come too soon. Probably five
hundred, if landed here this month, could find
engagements at once on our sugar and rice
plantations. The Japanese especially are high
ly spoken of by their employers, and it is to be
hoped that more of these may be induced to
migrate hither. They more readily conform
to the habits and mode of life of foreigners,
and appear to get aloug with the native race

as Chicago. In the population was 290,
111; in 1870, 3r8,0tM, and in 1875 the number
risen to 470,000, which, if correct, places lier
on a footing with the great Western cities of
Chicago and St Louis. Buffalo, with 136,
156, follows a long way behind the City of
Scandals, liaving gained 20,000 in five years.
In the smaller cities very little progress has
been made. Poughkeepsie, for instance, with
20,Ois7, has gained but seventeen in half a de
cide. A I Liny and Rochester are of equal size,
with a little more than 81,000. Returns from
the agricultural districts of the State are im
perfect, but a steady gain is apparent.
Thk Ocean telegraph cable service is practi
cally monopolized by England, as she controls
or owns nearly all the long lines. The largest
amonut f capital is that of the Anglo-American
Company $35,000,000 with seven cables.
No long lines are owned in America, and the
enterprise of Americans, notwithstanding that
loth the telegraph and the ocean cable were
American ideas, has not ventured into this
business, which now connects the most distant
parts of the earth. So vast is this system that
in case of war England could by her own
ocean cables direct her fleets and armies every
where, and all simultaneously, by orders sent
from London, and slruuld she close these cables
to her opponent the latter would have no pos
srble remedy. This is a situation that has
never been discussed, and seems to lie studi
ously avoided in England, bnt it is singular
how carefully all the great Powers of Europe
have avoided all possibility of a war with Eng
land since this great system of communication
was fully established. For their defence at
home, the American telegraphic system is per
fect, but for the defence of their commerce
abroad they have no means at all commensur
ate with those of England, nor does there seem
to be any likelihood of their possessing any for
a long time to come, as no telegraphic ' enter
prise has yet been developed iu America for
Tub American riflemen are ahead in con
testing for the English sweepstakes as well as
in the Irish match. Fvlto.v liaving made the
highest Krisible score in the St. Leger match,
he was tied by Rioby, an Irishman, and Mit
chell, an Englishman. Iu shooting off the
tie, however, Fulton won the stakes. Uild
khslekvb won one of the Albbbt prizes at
short range. The Americans generally are
ahead, and John Bull formally sends word by
cable that " the excellence of the American
marksmanship causes astonishment." There
is something more than this. These Ameri
can riflemen have succeeded in attracting
more attention than anything else American
ever excited in Great Britain. Their reception
is almost as remarkable as that accorded to
Moody and San-key. The Mayors of the en
tire United Kingdom have turned out in force
to welcome them. The newpapcrs have been
filled with encomiums of their skill. They
have been the sensation of the day. Why?
Here is a problem for the psychologists to
solve. The six or eight gentlemen who went
to Ireland to shoot are very ordinary men.
They havo a steady nerve, a good eye, and a
faculty of controlling themselves under excite
ment. But so have thousands of their country
men with the opportunity to develop the same
qualities. They are good shots with a rifle;
their claim to distinction begins and ends there.
Tct we do not believe that the same number
of American scientists, authors, inventors, or
statesmen could go to Englard and command
anything like the same attention. Verily,

At a meeting of the Privy Council, held at
Iolani Palace on Wednesday last, the following
resolutions, expressive of the sentiment of the
council on the death of Major Boyd, its secre
tary, were unanimously adopted. He held
this position from the date of the first meeting
after the death of King Lunalilo, and was al
ways promptly in his place and exact yet
courteous in the performance of the duties re
quired. The resolutions express not only the
sentiments of his fellow-councillors, but of al'
who had business relations with him :
Saolnd, That the late Major E. H. Boyd by his
amiable disposition, gentle manners, and generous
heart, endeared himself to all witb whom be came
in contact, and that we bit fellow member in this
Council are sincere mourners for bis death.
Asolred, That Hit Majesty hat lent a faitbfnl ser

exemplary citizen ; and each of us a true friend.
Roolttd, That we deeply sympathize with bit

find consolation through ber future life in tender
memories of a kind husband ; and that bis children
may keep before them the example or their father.

Iolani Palace, Sept. 8, 1875. F
Thb census of the State of New York, con
tains some interesting facts. Great additions
have been generally made to the population of
the principal cities. The City of New York,
which in 1865 had a population of 726,386,
and in 1870 of 942,292 now claims 1,200,000.
or over 250,000 increase in five years. This is
due in part to the annexation of fragments of
Westchester County, including several towns
of over 3,000 inhabitants. Brooklyn is credited
with an increase in population nearly as rapid
We havo received a copy of the new consti
tution of Samoa, under which King Malietoa
was elected for four years. In its main feat
ures it resembles the Hawaiian constitution,
and will doubtless serve to consolidate that
group under one authority, it heretofore having
been divided into petty chiefdoms, too fre
quently at war with each other. The constitu
tion was chiefly framed by Col. Steinbcrger,
under whose auspices or influence the govern
ment appears to have beon established. As
was natural he has been called to assume the
principal office, that of premier or secretary of
state, in fact, little else than the ruling power.
The chiefs and natives seem to have placed
full confidence in his ability to manage their
affairs ; and to assume the place given to him
he has renounced his American allegiance and
been created a Samoan noble or chief.
The first article of the new constitution cre
ates the government, and vests its powers in
the King, nobles and representatives to be
chosen by the people, very much like the Ha
waiian system. A peculiar feature of it is the
election of a King every four years by the no
bles or Taimua. This plan was adopted as a
compromise to unite the two Royal families, it
being understood that the Kings shall bo chosen
alternately from each branch. We quote the
section referring to this election.
Suction IV. With veneration for our customs
and ancient traditions, and to maintain inviolate the
great families wbo sprang from a race of Kings , and
to give greater security to our people, it Is decreed
that tbe Royal blood be acknowledged and shall be
perpetuated In the great houses of Malietoa and
Tapua. The King chosen from one of these families
shall reign for tbe period of four years, and npon
tbe expiration of tbU term, or of demise, tben tbe
succession shall tall to tbeotber of tbe two families,
that there shall be rotation In the line of Kings be
tween tbe two families of Malietoa and Taput, witb
tbe succession alternating in the two families. If
within tbe prescribed term of four yean, a vacancy
should btppen by death, impeachment or resigna
tion, tben the vacancy shall be filled from the other
house or family, and serve for a period of four years
and not for the unexpired term. Tbe King shall be
chosen by the Taimua, tbe Malo, and Ftipuln, as the
chosen representatives of Samoa now assembled at
Mulumu. Tte King shall make oath, to adhere, to
preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of
Samoa, to execute the laws and protect tbe rights
of the people.
Another section of the Constitution pre
scribes the duties and powers of the premier,
and as it was drawn up by the premier it will
be read with interest, as showing how com
pletely the supreme power is vested in his
own person :
' It shall be tbe duty of tbe King (tbe Taimna in
the interim,) to appoint some person as bis partlc
nltr Minister, whose title shall be Premier of tbe
Kingdom. His duty shall be to transact for the
King all bnsinesa connected with the special inter
ests of the Kingdom, nd all documents and bnsi
nesa executed by the Premier shall hare the force
as though executed by tbe King's authority. The
Premier shall be the King's special counsellor In
the important business of tbe Kingdom. Tbe King
shall not act without the knowledge of the Premier,
and the Premier shall be entitled to tbe floor of each
House of Parliament and join in debate."
The only remaining section of the constitu
tion possessing general interest is one provid
ing for the establishment of a republic, as
8rcriO!t lit. It la solemnlv decreed that after the
expiration of seven years when tbe people are accus
tomed to tbe ballot and realize tbe sanctity of tbe
election, tben tbe Parliament may call a general
election to give tbe people of Samoa tbe right to re
solve tbc monarchy Into a Republic. In the action
r tbe Parliament In calling tneb election the King
shall bare no voice, and this section of tbe Constitu
tion Is not subject of amendment
One section of the constitution provides that
it shall be above the king," a clause whieh
the Hawaiian Conatitntion did not contain, or
Kamehameha V. would not have done what
he did in violating it. The section last
quoted also has the express provision that the
king shall have no voice in the popular decision,
should the people prefer the establishment of
a Republio, which they will doubtless do, if
Rajah Steinberger maintains his position as
premier which is quite likely, as he has obtain
ed a strong hold on the confidence of the
Samoans. It is not every one who is able to
fill the place he occupies, or is willing to give
up his life to such a service. If he can do
i Samoa or the Samoans any good, we hope ho
may continue in their service for many years.
We observe that some of the American
papers are making a great hullabaloo about
the part which the American Government has
taken in Colonel Stoitiberger's effort to give to
Samoa a stable government. We imagine that
government has assumed no responsibility
in the matter, but that he was simply made a
bearer of presents to the Samoan chiefs, in re
turn for presents Bent by them to President
Grant. The part played by the Colonel in
what he has done or intends yet to do, is all his
own, and in no way involves the American
Government or people. So long as the Samoans
are benefitted by what he does, and so long as
foreigners are accorded equal privileges and
treated with civility, foreign governments will
doubtless recognize the new order of things
and be ready to enter into treaties and main
tain friendly relations with them, whether as
a monarchy or a republic.
The I'l-em h AaKfinbly
Adjoumed on the 4th of August till the 4th
of November. The majority in the present
(says the Alta were not elected for purposes
of ordinary legislation, or under orderly influ
ences. They were brought together in the
midst of tho confusion and humiliation of the
German conquest for the purpose of making
peace, at a time when a large proportion of
the men were in the army, and when the ordi
nary occupations were interrupted. They
made peace with the invaders ; but whether
on account of their own mismanagement or not,
found that they must make a civil war to sub
due the Parisian Communists. When they
had engaged in that business, they could not
retire from power ; but neither did they retire
when they had finished it ; and now, after a
lapse of five years, they still hold it. All the
Legitimists and Imperialists are anxious to
prevent a dissolution, because it would place
the Republicans iu power. Some of the Con
servatives and Republicans fear they will nev
er le re-elected, and they are glad to see the
continuation of the present state of affairs
It is universally admitted that if the elec
tion of a new Assembly should be held now,
the Republicans would obtain a large majority
in it, and the Monarchists see no hope, save in
delay and confusion, in the course of which
something may turn up to change the situa
tion. All the business before the Assembly
could be despatched in two weeks, but it is
not done, and the adjournment till the Ith of
November means that the election of a new
Assembly is to lie delayed till next year. Tho
events of the last six months have strengthen
ed the Republican sentiment of tho country ;
but that has no chance to obtain a formal ex
pression, and tho large proportion of the As
sembly are scheming actively to circumvent
and defeat it finally.
of a steamer, or the collapse of a banking com
pany like the recent one in New York, when
the premium on gold advanced two per cent.
Yet inch statements are believed by some of
the Western farmers, who think that they can
buy more for 1 1 2 cents in greenbacks than 100
in gold when the premium is 12. The truth is,
they cannot buy with their 1 1 2 cents in currency
anywhere near what 100 cents in gold will
purchase, as the charges of every kind on the
former are so greatly increased. When Dun
can, Sherman & Co. failed, had greenbacks
been convertible into gold at the option of the
holder, there could have been no disturbance
in the money market, and merchants who held
one or the other could have exchanged them
without a loss in doing so. The failure could
not have had the slightest effect in their val
ues or in the business of thu country. It ia
strange that the business men of that country
cannot see the operation of the two currencies.
While California ami the Pacific slope are ad
vancing with wonderful prosperity on a sure
gold basis, other sections of the Union are la
boring under frequent panics, caused in part by
the inflated currency adopted there.
'rise Carlits Ibi Spain.
For the first time in tho history of the pre
sent Carlist rebellion in Spain, the Government
seems to be obtaining material advantages.
General DorTegary, tho leader of the Carlist
forces, has been hard pushed. The fourteen
battalions under his command, are supposed to
number 45,000 of tho best troops of the Carlist
army. His retreat before the Alienists toward
the French frontier, over difficult mountain
roads, in which he accomplished fifty-six miles
in one day, is considered an admirable feat of
strategy ; but being unable to penetrate into
French territory, he was obliged to tum back
in the direction of Harhastro. The fact that
172 ron of his rear guard were compelled to
take refuge on French soil, where they were
captured by French troops and disarmed.
shows that France is paying heed to the pro
tests of Alfonso, against permitting tho escape
of the fugitive Spanish soldiers or armies in
that direction. While the fortunes of General
Dorregary are thus critical, Don Carlos is at

or TMR II twill t
1 IB Karate of Aa iCb
The tuslralinn Mall Service.
In looking over our Australian files, we see
it stated that the Colonial govermeiits of Xcw
South Wales and New Zealand may
require the steamers of the new line to touch
at Honolulu, if they sec fit to do so, and that
this will depend very much on the ability of
the new boats to make the contract time agreed
on 648 hours between Sydney and San Fran
cisco. This is as we supposed it to be, and
that the stoppage here does not depend wholly
on the company which performs the contract.
In tho debate or in the contract, in the New
South Wales Parliament, one of the speakers
(Mr. Lloyd,) stated some facts of interest :
"Having gone througti the Poet master-General's
report, be found that tbe average time taken in tbe
delivery of our mailt via Torres Straits and BrindUi
was tlxty-firc dayi, wbile tbe leltere going bv tbc
San Francisco route averaged flfly-tbrec days. On
the outward passage, tbe time via tbe Torres Straits
route bad been filly nine days, wbile on tbe San
Francisco route tbe time btd been fifty days, show
ing an advantage In favor of the San Francisco ser
vice of four days one way, and twelve days tbc
other. Tbe P. and O. Company bad, no donbt.
beaten the San Francisco service so far as tbe de
livery of letters by way of Brindisi was concerned,
bat their time of fifty-six days by way of Sootbamp.
ton was beaten by tbc San Francisco service. Tbe
City of Mclbonrne tbe other day brought letters
from London in fifty-two days, which would have
been only 49 days had not tbe vessel bad to make
detour bv oiling at Auckland, which delayed ber
three days. Tbe bon. member for Canterbury (Mr.
Hill) wanted to know wbat control tbey bad over
tbc mailt when tbey landed In America. Why tbey
bad the control ot tbe British Government, which
bad a convention witb tbe Government of tbe Unit
ed States, and tbe mailt were conveyed nnder tbe
same authority as were the United Statea mails.
Our mails were sent by tbe same boats as tbe Unit
ed States mails, and not by slower boats."
If the new boats are what they should be
11 knot speed and tbe through time is not
over 37 days to San Francisco, seven days to
New York, with an average of eleven days
across the Atlantic the mails will be delivered
regularly at each end of the route in 45 days
considerably less than the best time now per
formed. Greenback vs. Carreaey.
It may seem strange that one of the planks
in the platform of the Democratic party of
Ohio should advocate a greenback currency
instead of gold. Whether this will be gener
ally adopted by the party in the United State
or not, remaina to be seen. The New York
World is very strongly opposed to it, and ad
vocates a resumption of specie payments as
soon as practicable. One of the Western pa
pers boldly takes the ground that the green
back is tbe standard of values ; that it alone is
true, stable, and immovable ; and that when a
fanner sella wheat at $1 per bushel in coin,
while it ranges from $1.12 to $1.20 in paper,
it is tbe gold which fluctuates and not the pa
per I In other words, that while the paper
money has the solidity, weight and fineness,
and the undeviating permanent value stamped
upon it, it is the insubstantial, feathery gold
that has a value so transitory that it may be
affected by a change of the wind, the wrecking
The Pacific Mail receives subsidies from tho
Mexican and American Republics ou account
of the continuation of the present steamship ser
vice, as follows; Costa Rica, $16,000 per an
num, in gold; Nicarauga, 812,000 ; Honduras,
812,000 ; Salvador, 815,000 ; Gautemala, $25,-
000 ; Mexico, $30,000. Mexico also pays $10.-
000 gold for the Post Office services, The
Company also obtain a subsidy of $450,000
from the Australian Government for a monthly
mail service beteeu Sydney and San Francis
co. The Company has also formed a contract
with the Occidental and Oriental Steamship
Company, and the Central and Union Pacific
roads, whereby mail, passengers and freight
service between China and Japan, San Fran
cisco and New York, should bo performod by
the Company. The Pacific Mail also receive
an annual subscription of $500,000 dollars for
performing a monthly service between China and
San Francisco. The Company gives a semi
monthly service, which was liegun at the time
of granting of additional subsidy by the United
States. This latter subsidy was withdrawn,
but tho Company still continue to hold it. It
is now arranged that tho Pacific Mail shall
only perform a monthly service, and tho Occi
dental and Oriental Company a like service,
the vessels of the second sailing on alternate
intervals of fifteen days, which will make a
semi-monthly line between China and the Uni
ted States. Tho steamers will all retain con
nect:on with the Pacific Railroad and the Pa
Pacific Mail Company, and tho roads will di
vidothe earnings of the through tea and other
business between China and the United States,
giving half to the Steamship Company and
half to the Railroad Company. The Company
also agree to guarantee six hundred tons of
freight semi-monthly to the coast ateamera of
the Pacific Mail. This freight will be of a
bulky or heavy character.
The Pacific Mail steamers which are thue
released by this arrangement from the Cliina
service will be placed on the Australian branch
of the line, and will ply between Sydney and
San Francisco. Despatchea from persona rep
resenting the Pacific Mail, received lately,
state that the contract with the N. Zealand and
Australian Governments had been signed, and
that a regular formal contract would be trans
mitted by mail to receive the signatures and
seals of tho officers of the Company.
