OH TUESDIY OF LIST 1VECK,
HIP : EIP : HI? I HURRAH ! : !
WITH A TIGER.
Yesterday afternoon, August 2Uh. at 1:30 p.
M. the approach of the P. M. SS. CVy of
: Francis, Captain Wadde.l tvas telegraphed
i from the outer station. It being understood
; that site would bring news of the fate of the
; treaty either for weal or woe, the announcement
1 caused much excitement, and her appearance
was awaited with solicitude. . When she
rounded Diamond Head, and it was discovered
that she was decked with a rainbow of bunt
ing from bowsprit to stern, all were confident
that she was the bearer of good tidings, and
enthusiasm ran high. The news spread like
wild-tire through the town, and when shortly
after ihrco'clo -k she entered the harbor, and
the news for which we have for eighteen long
months watched and waited that the Treaty bill
has passed t he Senate, and had been signed
by the President, reached the large crowd on
the wharf the popular joy was intense, men's
hearts appeared. to be too full for utterance
the town was jubilant. We give below full
particulars of the passage of the Treaty, with
the list of the ayes and noes.
The measure met with bitter opposition at
the laHt moment from Morrill of Vermont and
several of the southern senators. The former,
endeavored with deep-laid malignity to intro
duce an amendment which would have neces
sitated its return to the House, and a postpone
ment of its passage for another year ; but he
(From theS. F. Chronicle, Aug. 15).
Lsst night's dispatches brought as the gratifying
intelligence that the Act to carry into effect tbe Reci
procity treaty with the Hawaiian Islatids had passed
; the Senate by a vot oi 2D to 12. Simple justice re
quire tbe acknowledgment that this result is mainly
due to the persistent and energetic efforts of Senator
Sargent, who has worked for the success of the meas
ure with untiring zeal. This importance of tbe treaty
does not consist wholly 91 mainly j tbe commercial
advantages, so far as tbe trt le of the islands is con
cerned, which we may reap from it. The geographi
cal position of the group makes it the key of the ocean
r from San Francisco to Asia and tbe Aastrali.tn
Colonies, and the possession of those islands by any
foreign pnwer would be a great calamity in other res
pects than those which would directly affect onr cn.
mercial interests. Honolulu is tbe nearest island port
to San Fruwbeo. Its manifest destiny is, at ni dis
tant day, cither to become an American port or to
fall into tbe bands of soma European power. The
I United States will, in the near future, need a naval
, station in the Pacific, and the Hawaiian government
, long since announced its readiness, upo the final
! ratification of tbe treaty, to cede ns an excellent har
; bor suitable for that par; ose on Pearl river.
Twice bef.re the attempt his been made to estab
lish reciprocity between the United States and Il.v
wail. Tbe first cf the.-e attempts wn made in i
' and it was defonted in tbe Senate by tbe opposition
of Judah P. Benjamin and Jt.hn It. Slidell, who
! feared that the sugar raising interests of Louisiana
; would be injuriously affected by its success. ometen
i years later the effort was renewed and was again de
; feated in the Senate. Tbe third treaty, which has
now been finally confirmed . is more favorable to tbe
! Cniicd States than e:ther of the preceding ones.

How Sargent managed the Hawaiian bill
The p:igago of the Hawaiian treaty bili by such a
surprisingly large majority was the result of tbe fine
nnd n?iduous efforts' privately made by its Senato-
rial friend;- among their colleague- on the floor, in
1 this way witbont endangering the bill by the proloo-
mott of them resorted to Honolnln to get their
snpplies, and of late years they have discharg
ed their cargoes there, for shipment to the
East in other vessels. The Americans have
from the first had a large majority among the
whalers cf the North Pacific, usually from
three-fourths tp four-fifths, so that the whal
ing trade was predominantly American. The
destruction of a large part of the whaling
fleet by a Confederate cruiser, in the time of
the civil war, was felt almost as severely in
Honolulu as in New Bedford, where most of
the vessels were owned.
Whatever increase there may be in the pro
ductions or commerce of the islands will pay
a profit to this city for the commercial and
other relations between this port will now be
more intimate than ever before. Hawaii will
require more laborers in its sugar plantations,
and will come hither for white men as well as
Chinamen. A little emigration to the islands
may be expected immediately; and some white,
who have been afrnid they would have to
leave Honolulu, will now remain.
The Debate on the final passaace or
(From tbe Alta.)
When the Hawaiian bill came op, Norwood of
Georgia continued bis remarks against it. He ar
gutd that there is no inducement for acquiring tbe
Hawaiian lilands as an outpost in tbe Pacific Ocean.
It had been asserted that tbe population of tbe Is
lands ha.) been rapidly decreasing, and if tho Bill ia
passed the Islands would naturally fall into oorhand.
He denied that the alleged decrease of population was
of the per centum claimed, and said that evon if it
was, at that rate it would take fourteen years, with
the present population of 40.U00, to dwindle down to
;.0,OOU. He quoted from the book of Nordboff at
length to show the condition of affairs in tut Hawaii
un Islands, and argued that the production of sugar
there was weighed down with liifficulties which did
: not exist un where else. He said i; was tbe ni'.st re
i tu;trkable thing he had ever heard of, that tbe King
el a country with wbich a treaty had been negotiated,
bad a Minister bere urging the pas.-uge of tbe u.eas
I urc, which that Minister argued wouiii be tbe destruc-
tiop of the kingdom bo represented. He argued that
'' this measure was urged by the Hawaiian government
' for pecuniary advantage. That country would reap
! the benefit of the bill, should it be parsed, and tbe
! United States would be the sufferers. In his opinion
King Kalakaua had far more Mate craft than the Uni
ted Slates, and be knew that the pas-age of the bill
would be a bone tit Ij tbc Kingdom. Too effect of the
bill would be to give to tho Hawaiian Islands a bonus
t f 1 1.000, UUO a year, and it Would increase tbe diffi
culties in tbe way of their being acquired by the Uni
ted States. He raid that the Chinese on the islands
were on tbe increase. Coolie labor was iiscreaing;
and suppose the United States shuuld acquire them,
it woul'J only gel a race of Chinese coolies and hait
breeds. Tbe people of his section were m u- interes
ted iu the defeat of the bill than nil of the rest of the
United States besides. To take the duty off rice
would be to diminish its price below the cost of pro.
duction iu this country, und .UD,(itU people v n: de
pendent ud the production oi rice in South Carolina,
Georgia and Louisiana, nnd the interests of all the
people would be injured by the pa?ugu of the bill,
j Muriili of V- rn: y. , tbtrD addres-ed tbe Seuute in
i opposition to the bill, and said that it bad Uen ar
' gued by tbe Senutor from California (Sargent) that
I tucre was something of honor involved in its parage
i Hi me present time, uu account of the previous ratiti-
cation of the treaty. Ho(Mnrrili) held that tbe HtsV
ute na? independent of tl e Executive, as it was of tbe
I House, aud in ibis treaty it was expiessty pruvided
; that it should not go into effejt until tbe necessary
legislation passed Congress to carry it into effect. He
argued that the passage of the bill would act disas
trously upon the production of sugur and rice in the
Importers and Dealers in

Hurrah for Hawaii !
fFrom the AU, Aug. II.
Tlie news of the final pushing of the bill to
earn the Hawaiian Treaty into effect will give
satsHfaction on tbe Pacific Slope. It is the
general opinion here that it will do little in
jury to IDT industrial or commercial interests
in the United States, and that it will confer
decided benefits Upon our Coast, as well as
upon the Hawaiian Islands. The Treaty the
text f which appears in our Commercial
Mas out-gcneraled by Sargent, who, together columns-provides that " brown and all other
thought this uht be considered one of tbe worst
bargains ever presented to tbe American tieoale.
Ili'cbc ck moved Ij lay asi-ie the pending business
and take up tbe resolution of the House providing lor
adjournment at 4 o'clock thin afternoon.
Sargent appea'cd to tho Senator not to press that
motion. lie thought a vote awttld be reached on the
Hawaiian Hill iu a short time, by Working along
without a recess. He had no doubt that tbe session
could be terminated by midnight. Hitchcock then
withdrew his motion.

We owe a debt of lasting gratitude to Sena
tor Sargent anH Congressman Luttrell.
Every effort to co-operate with our Pacific
. Coast delegation and to urge a vole on the
Bill has been made by means of strung peti
tions got up and signed and transmitted to
Washington at great expense and labor by our
I friends in this city, and the result has con-
' vinced all the friends of Hawaii here, that
without the political influence we secured in
our petitions coming right from the Bepubli-
, can Convention in session, the passage of the
Bill would have been very doubtful in the
Booth, as you observe, voted against the
Bill, his being the only dissenting vote from
the whole Pacific Coast. His grcatuess, if he
ever had any, has vanished.
Great thanks are due to San Francisco for
hesr intercts, in short had not Sargent and this

The Hawaiian sugar crop is about half of
the consumption of the Pacific Slope, and has
for twenty 3-ears been increasing at the rate
of 500 tons annually, while the demand here
has increased with equal or greater speed, and
we see no probability that the sugar exporta
tion of tho Island will ever be snfnVient to
o long as
all the refining must be done here, and so long
as we must send to Manila and other places
for a considerable share of our brown sugars,
and so long as the sugar p:oduction of the
Hawaiian Islands remains a mere trifle, as
compared with tho total consumption of the
United States, so long we must not expect any
material reduction of the market price of
sugar, or any notable damage to Louisiana or
California Biigar mills or San Francisco re

ing th-iso Islands now, be desired to see tbein in such j
a cunditiiin that when tbe prasaat rulers disappeared.

fere, them to go to Kogluud, i'rance or some other
Cnuntry fur such a treaty.

if the I-lauds were needed as u military outpo.-t, tbey

the money of tbe people, a. Ibis bill proposed. He
denied bat any advantag would be gained iu a mili

Hons ; bnt Hie Islands produce no almonds or
walnuts, and have no large surplus of oranges,
limes, or lemons. The Hatvaii ins have pre
erred sugar plantations to orange orchards,
and importations of tropical fruits have come
mostly not rom the Hawaiian, but from the
Society Islands. As for the rice, arrow-root,
castor-oil, vegetables, hides, pulu, seeds and

exportation, and their admission free does not

additions to the American tariff have been felt
severely. The natives have been dying oft" at
the rate of one per cent, a year, for the last
twenty years; in thirty years before 1853,
there was a decrease of 44 per cent ; in the
fifty years before 1821, more than 50 per cent.
Cook estimated the population at 400,000 in
1779; and there were only 56,000 natives of
the Hawaiian race in 1872. There, as in many
other places, the dark-skinned races seem to
melt aw.iy before the influences that came with
Honolulu, as a city, was built up by the
