strain. In 1844 the Plaqnemine frauds in Lou
siana robbed Clay of the vote of that State.
W-. ether he would have become President had
he received that vote is open to doubt ; but the
whole Whig party believed that Polk was elec
ted by gross fraud. What happened ? There
was no riot, no revolution, no civil war. The
people yielded to necessity and saved the law,
though it was corrupted. The same thing oc
curred in New York State when Jay was elec
ted Governor nd George Clinton was counted
in by indisputable fraud. In that casealso the
people submitted and waited until the next
election, when they overthrew their adversa
ries and triumphantly elected Jay. In the lon
struggle which grew out of slavery what did
the North do? It bore patiently every strain,
and used only legal and moral force. The vio
lence of the war was of the South and not of
the North. South Carolina assailed the flag,
and the hand that struck it was smitten with
paralysis. Whatever decision is made in re
gard to the Presidency, the North by both
parties will accept it, no matter what suspi
cion of fraud there may be, and will look to
the future for redrew. And the South will
not attempt violence. It has no blood to spare.

It will be seen by reference to the official
) column that a new commission has licen ap
l pointed under the act to aid the development
of the resources of the Kingdom," which now
1 consists of their Excellencies Ministers Carter
and Kapena and Captain Jas. Makee. These
gentlemen will leave for Hawaii in the steamer
of February 13th, landing at Kohala, thence
will visit various points of interest, and pro
ceed overland to Hilo, thence to Kan, return
ing by way of Kona. The trip w ill probably
occupy from four to six weeks. A notice in
the official column invites all parties having
plans to lay before the Commission to do so as
early as possible. A programme of the ill
tended tour around Hawaii will be published
before the steamer leaves on the 13th, bo that
persons on that island, wishing to confer with
them, may know when and where to effect a
It is understood that Chief Justice Allen
will accept the appointment of Hawaiian Min
ister ltesidcnt at Washington, and will leave
as soon as he may be able to clo9e up his
official labors here probably in February or
March next. The necessity of having a repre
sentative at Washington is liecoming more ap
parent every month, as questions arising from
the Treaty are constantly being raised, which,
unless settled at once, may lead to contro
versy. There are also parties in the Eastern
United States known to be opposed to the
treaty, who may seek to terminate it by legis
lative action in Congress. These contingen
cies can be more effectually met by having
the right man on the spot. The expense
attending such .. mission ought not to be
thought of in view of the great benefits con
ferred by the treaty. The last legislature
voted a salary of 34,000 a year for this pur
pose ; but the least sum necessary to main
tain au officer in the position, considering the
expenses of living in that city, is $5,000, and
we trust the legislature will increaso the pay
to this figure, at least.
The America Extradition Treaty .
A distatch was received at Washington,
on the 7th of December, from London, an
nouncing that the British government, after
consultation with Mr. Picrrepont, the Ameri
can Minister, has consented to waive all its
claims on the extradition question and to re
new the former treaty. It was also stated
that the Earl of Derby, in a conversation with
Mr. Pierrepont, had accepted Mr. Fish's dis
patch arguing that the ground taken by the
British Government was untenable. The Lord
Chancellor of England concurred in the Earl
of Derby's view that the position assumed by
Great Britain in the former negotiations was
premature, and that the Government had no
choice but to recede unconditionally from that
position. The London Daily News gives the
following as the interpretation accepted by
England : "That a prisoner surrendered for
one offence may-, after fair trial for that of
fence, be at once re-arrested in the country to
which he has liccn delivered up, and put on
his trial for any other crimo for which he
would be liable to extradition under the treaty.
Upon the British Government coming to the
conclusion described aliovc, officers in Lon
don arrested Brent, an American, charged with
forgery, and an attempt was made to arrest
Winslow, but he had fled. Mr. Pierrepont has
been instructed to convey to the United States
Government a request for the opening of ne
gotiations for a new treaty enlarging the scope
Notwithstanding the case seemed so plain,
and the action of the British authorities unac
countable on any data that we had at the time,
we did not doubt that, under the blinding in
fluence ol national prejudice, the officers of the
English government were acting on their sin
cere conviction : but viewed in the light of
their frank confession that they had taken a
wrong position, the case is very suggestive of
instruction in regard, not only to international,
but to domestic questions. The course of the
British government is as honorable as it Iras
been frank and manly.

So long as it preserves its present high char
acter, io long we shall command the respect
of foreign governments. As an illustration of
this, we may instance the answer of the
Foreign Secretary of one of the leading
powers, when applied to recently on behalf of
one of his countrymen to inquire into, or set
aside the decisiou of the Hawaiian Court, that
he sustained its ruling, and had never seen
anything in the Court decisions of Hawaii to
lead him to question their equity and sound
ness. This will show what is thought by
eminent men abroad concerning our Court ;
and nothing should lie allowed to transpire
here that may weaken its reputation.

It is with much regret that wo learn that
there is danger of our losing the present effi
cient steam service between this port and San
Fraucisco. The Governments of New South
Wales and New Zealand have changed the
contract with the Pacific Mail Company, so
that the steamers of this line will not here
after do the New Zealand coasting service ;
and so great is their desire to shorten the
time between the colonies and London, that
they have expressed a strong desire to omit
Fiji and Honolulu from the schedule. On the
other hand, we learn that the Pacific Mail
Company, acting o.i the advice of influential
friends here, desire to keep up the connection
with this port, and will do so, provided the
Hawaiian Government pay them the subsidy
of $1000 per month promised by the late ad
ministration, and voted bv the legislature. It
will certainly be a great misfortune to have
steam communication with San Francisco
broken off, especially that of the splendid
ships which now furnish greater facilities
thaii we have ever before enjoyed. The col
onial papers maintain that the trips can be
performed in from thirty-six to forty hours
less time by omitting Kandavu and Honolulu.
On the score or economy the subsidy of 1000
a month is the cheapest arrangement that we
can enter into. To maintain any other steam
service will coat us much more. We may add
that a letter received by the last mail from a
gentleman residing in Auckland, stated, that
on inquiry he found it quite uncertain whether
the boats would stop at Honolulu after Janu
ary ; but it does not seem probable that they
will omit this port without some notice.
We shall have no second civil war, says a
New York paper. " In Europe nothing is so
much dreaded as a disputed succession. But in
this country there have been fifteen Presidents
in a hundred years. Toere have been twenty
two elections, at which a srreat pryr.b have
dooided the question oi sncceatuou w.thuiit
Tin: Legislature, at its session last summer,
passed a law to aid the development of the
resources of the Kingdom by the appointment
of a Commission "of three suitable persons
" whose duty it shall be to visit any and all
" districts of the various islands of this group
" which may be thought to possess agricul
" tural resources hitherto undeveloped, and
" after careful examination to report to the
" Minister of Interior, in writing, an estimate
" of the quality of land in any one locality
" capable of being cultivated to advantage,
" the nature of the crops which can bo raised
" thereon, and the feasibility of constructing
" landings therefor, or other facilities for the
" shipment of produce, or roads leading to the
" same, or water courses thereon for the pur
" pose of irrigation, or for furnishing power
"for mills, or whatever other improvements
" may to them appear feasible and necessary
" in order to tho development of the agricul
" tural resources of the locality visited ; and
" the said commission shall prepare or cause
" to be prepared careful estimates of the pro-
" bable cost of such improvements, sufficient
" surveys and other recommendations which
" to them shall seem advisablo to report."
The law, which comprises nine sections, is
not so full in its details or in its instructions
to the Commissioners as it should havo been.
It moreover neglects to provide compen
sation for those who may engage in the ser
vice, except, perhaps, traveling expenses, and
the payment of even these is made conditional.
This omission is a serious one, and will pro
bably hinder the effectual carrying out of the
intention of the law, which is one of the best
ever enacted by Hawaiian Legislature.
The law evidently contemplates a thorough
inquiry into the undeveloped agricultural re
sources of the Kingdom, and calls for the
viewB of the Commission as to how these re
sources may be encouraged by temporary or
permanent aid from the government. To tve
complish this much-desired object a pcrma.
nent bureau was evidently designed to be
established1, . comprising persons of sufficient
experience to render their judgment trust
worthy. The service ought to be a perma
nent one, and will probably increase from year
to year, as new capital and new enterprises
seek encouragement and assistance.
There are many localities on each of
islands, now our comparatively worthless,
which might be improved by water courses, or
bridges, or buoys and landings, but especially
by roads. These can be brought into use
only by assistance on the part of the govern
ment : and a permanent commission, de
voting itself to this object, and holding itself
ready to be summoned to any part of the
group, is evidently what the law contemplates
and what public interests call for. It seems
hardly possible to expect this work from
government officers, already in service, who
are needed in their own departments, and
whose prolonged absence from their various
posts always creates complaint.
Merchants, planters and others of long ex
perience in the country can be found for this
service, if a reasonable compensation is pro
vided. In bringing to it all the outside aid
and co-operation possible to assist in pnblie
service of this nature, the government strenstth-
A report on ail the points called for by the
law quoted above, together with a full list of
government lands and of any private lands
capable of improvement, might be made, in
connection with the land surveys now in pro
gress, tho most valuable document ever pre
pared here, and tend more 'han anything else
to bring us the capital and labor so much
needed, and without which all our resources
will amount to nothing.
Tiie Central Factory System.
Wk reprint to-day the first of a couple of
interesting letters written by Mr. Angus Mac
kay, the Queensland Commissioner, and pub
lished in the Queenslander, giving some of the
results of his investigations in the United
States and West Iudies in the subject of su -.tr.
He found the sugar business generally de
pressed, the exceptions being in Louisiana and
Martinique, localities where the celebrated
"central factory system" is most in vogue,
aud in his view, from which we see no reason
to dissent, these exceptions are due to the al
most complete separation of cane growing
from sugar manufacture involved in that sys
tem. We have alwavs maintained the pro
priety of keeping these two industries wholly
distinct and separate, and we are pleased to
meet with the support found in Mr. Mackay's
letters. It may be true that in Hawaii the
condition of population is not so favorable for
the successful working of the system as in the
French West Indies, but let the system be
once fairly inaugurated, and let it be publish
ed all the world round that we can offer more
favorable terms to small farmers in cano than
any other country, and it will lie strange in
deed if there does not follow an influx of immi
grants of the most desirable kind.
And is it not true that we can offer belter
terms than any other sugar growing country ?
It will be noticed that in Martinique the cane
is purchased from tho cultivators at the rate
of "the current market value of from 4 to 5
lbs. of sugar, for oach 100 lbs. of cane deliver
ed at the mill," which is there equivalent to
from S'2.50 to 31.00 per ton of cane, while
here it would amount to from Sj.CO to S7.00
per ton. Again, in regard to the comparative
average yield of this country and others, we
believe that no country in the world can show
larger returns per acre than Uuwaii, and as
regards the deusity of juice, ours is fully up
to the average.
The plan of buying cane by weight from the
farmers has, we believe, never been tried here,
but we think its introduction might be attend
ed with beneficial results. We know from ex
poriencd that under our system of grinding
cane on shares, the producer, when of a sus
picious nature, often feels that he has been
wronged, and this is not to be wondered at,
for in tho complex process of manufacture he
loses sight of his property, and is compelled
to fall back on faith. Were he able to witness
the weighing of every load of cane, and to re
ceive pay for every pound announced by tho
scales, there would be little room for the
practice of fraud, or opportunity to suspect it.
We think that to both native und Chinese cul
tivators this plan would be especially satis
tory. The prosperity of this Kingdom will be as
sured when we see the large part of our sugar
cultivated, not by careless, indifferent and un
interested day laborers, but by men who,
owning the cano tlioy cultivate, can leel that
every exorcise of energy, industry and intelli
gence, will accrue to their own advantage,
and when stock is held in sugar manufacturing
companies by all classes of the commnnity.
"A Darvvinisit before Darwin.
Tiif. above is the heading of an article in the
Independent of Dec. 7. Why is it that the
word Evolution is so unpleasant to many
Christian men? And why do they fear a can
did discussion of the subject? Luthor and
Melancthon were afraid of the Copernican
theory ; and the Romish church persecuted
Galileo and forced him to recant. Luther and
Melancthon and others considered the system
defended by Copernicus and Galileo as con
flicting with the statements of tho Bible.
Hence their opposition. Many good and in
telligent people of the present ago regard tho
theory of Darwin and Huxley as contradicting
the Bible, and they condemn the theory as in
fidel and atheistic. Huxley thinks that he
has demonstrated the theory ; but reasoning
minds are not yet satisfied with the evidence
he produces. The missing links are too numo
routi at present, to allow of a complete demon
stration. There are many people who search the
Scriptures with the simple object of finding
discrepancies and contradictions ; and the
same unworthy motive leads many to seize
with eagerness any theory that seems hostile
to the word of God. And it is this tendency
of human nature that alarms many of the wise
But who was the Darwinist before Darwin?
No less a personage than Professor Taylor
Lewis, a staunch champion of tho Inspired
Word, and who had much to do in getting out
Lange's Commentaries on Genesis and Job.
In 1855, years before Darwin and Huxley
broached the theory of evolution, Dr. Lewis
taught that the Bible represented, not a direct
creation, but a growth, a iuUuret a Qnesi8. Ho
says, "The original divine power may be sup
posed to have originated the new order of life
in its most generic and universal germ, and
all subordinate genera and species may have
been developed from it, and from each other
by the action of Nature, under their new
power, and in obedience to the new law, or
the new modification of previous law thus and
then imparted to it. In this way species
would grow out of species, as individuals out
Of the origin of man he says, " We are not
much concerned about the mode of production
of his material, or mere physical organization.
In regard to this there is nothing in the ex
pressions, " He mode," or " He created them,"
which is at war with the idea of growth, or
development, during either a longer or a
shorter period. Ages might have been em
ployed in bringing that material nature
through all the loer stages up to the neces
sary degree of perfection for the higher use
that was afterwards to be made of it. We do
not say that the Bible teaches this ; we do
not think that any one would be warranted in
putting any such interpretation upon it There
is, however, in itself, and aside from any
question of interpretation, nothing monstrous
or incredible in the idea that what had for
merly been the residence of an irrational and
groveling tenant, might now be selected aa the
ward position, whilst it takes on that beauty
of face and form, which would become the
new intelligence, and, indeed, be one of its
necessary results. On this head, however,
the Bible gives cs no distinct information.
We can merely say it seems to imply an imme
diate formation, even of the material nature,
as though man were altogether a new thing,
wholly severed from all physical connection
with any previous states of being: still the
language is not inconsistent with the other
supposition. In fact, the mention of earth as
the material from which the body was made
would appear to intimate some use of a pre
vious nature, together with the laws, the
growth, the affinities, the established out
goings of such previous nature."
Now, here is development or evolution, not
from an infidel, not from a scientist, but from
a devont student of the Bible. Years before
Darwin and Huxley were heard of, he de
clared the "Miltouic Theory" as neither
rational nor credible, nor easily reconciled
with biblical language. If then we believe
that the dame glorious Being who created the
universe has given us a revebtion of himself
in the Bible, why should wo lie disturbed be
cause new discoveries of His infinite power are
made known ? Should the theory of evolu
tion be demonstrated, we may rest assured
that it will be in harmony with the teachings
of the Bible.
The Copernican system of the universe does
not contradict the Bible, though many, two or
three hundred years age, supposed that it did;
so will Huxley's theory, should it be demon
strated, lie found to harmonise with the Bible.
The best biblical scholars are not agreed in
interpreting the first and second chapters of
Genesis. Some still hold to the idea that the
six days of creation are to be understood
literally, six days of twenty-four hours each.
The majoriiy now take the ground, that the
days are periods of prolonged, indefinite dura
tion. In the "special introduction to the first
chapter of Genesis " in Lange's Commentary,
published in 1808, Dr. Lewis says, "The full
formation of man in tho sixth day does not
oppose the idea that the powers and evolu
tions of matter that were finally sublimated
into the imperishable germ of the human body,
mid the types from lower forms that finally
went into tho human physical constitu
tion were being prepared during all the days.
This was his being formed out of tho earth,
that is, out of Nature in its evolving series.
Here, too, it may tie said, (though with the
diffidence that becomes every exegetical at
tempt to penetrate these creative mysteries),
we have some light upon that dark und puz
zling language, " When I was made in secret
and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of
earth," Ps. 139: 15. Dr. Lowis regards this
language as referring to the earth out of which
the Lord God formed man ; and he asserts that
" it is not strango that the authority of this
most sublime Psulm should have hod in view
either primarily or suggestively this remote
