The Iolar Hes.
Exqlakd's Attksipt to Find thr Polk.
I he ilwar. beliereil in tho existence of an
open Polar sea. I think I stood upon its shore
in 1861. 1 beliere tbnt sea navigable, and I am
utterly at a loss to understand why the Alert
and Discorery did not sail upon its waters, unless
we assume that the spirit which animated Iiiif&o.
U.Ms. Parry, aud tbe long list of Arctic heroes
has dies oat w ith the advnuce or steam, tbe tele
graph and home comforts. Now, please remem
ber tbat Ibis great Knglisb expedition really
started where 1 lelt ofl. The North Pole was
only approached by some eighty miles nearer
than 1 approached it. It is said that tbe ice was
eigbly feet thick. Jo plaiu Knulish. I don't be
liere it. aod I don't understand bow it happened
that a grand expedition, fitted out with such a
great flourish ol trompeis. at Buch enormous cost,
should have got frightened after oue winter, and
hurried home w:'.h the old cry that tbe North
Pole can't be reached. They did not slay there
lung enuogh to prove it or tell anything about It.
To he sure, the matter of getting to tbe North
Pole is of little consequence in a business point
of view. It may be of no consequence whatever,
but bere is an expedition filled out expressly to
do it ; has unlimited time ; has every possible
advantage : has tbe unqualified support of the
Unliah OuveromeDl, and yet, frightened by one
winter's experience, harries home to report ano
ther failure. The Polaris did belter, for even
after tbe death of Caplain 1 1 .ill. it stuck until it
was crashed by tbe ice. Liad (Japt. Haddington
been imbued with the same emotions as actuated
OapL Hall, I beiieve he could have sleumed to
the North Pole, and 1 venture to say tbat. whe
ther the Alert could or could not have cone
there, one year's experience was uol ouough to
1 am a firm believer in an open Polar 6ea. It
is not a sea available for the purposes of com
merce, but it is certainly a sea or ocean, as you
may please to call it. Whatever interest at
taches toil, is of a purely scientific character
To pursue science requires patience, and to go
with a great government expedition, especially
to make scientific discoveries, with the distinct
understanding that there is no other motive,
teems to me to require something more than a
simple " It can't be done." So far as getting to
the North Pole is concerned, I am sure ii can
be done, and, in failing to do it after only one
year's trial. 1 tbiok the Knglisb expedition has
shown a lamentable lack of Knglish pluck. They
say they had a dreadful lime of U ; some people
were Irozen, and three or four of them died.
That was their own fault. Tiuveling in tbe
Arctic regions is not more terrible or more dan
gerous thau traveling anywhere else. It is n
matter ol care aud judgment. Accidents may
happen, bat it is the duly of i commander to see
thai I hey dou 't happen. 1 believe I hare made
as long a sledge journey as any one on record. I
experienced a temperature during that journey of
70 below zero, and yet there was never in all
the sixty days occupied by the journey so much
as a frost-bile to any of the parly, and yet this
was in the exact region where the Knglisb ex
pedition had beet), finding, us they say. eighty
feel of ico. The Polaris was in the same quar
ter, and got nearly as far north.
The Polaris met with no such ice, but met
with the same demoralization. In my opinion
there is no serious trouble about gelling lo the
North Pole, but I don'l believe it can be done
in oue year, and maybe Dot in two. aud I must
say, and thai most emphatically, that the results
ol this last of the Arctic Expeditions are in no
way commensurate with its pretensions auy moro
than they are with its opportunities, its like
will never be seen again, and tho chance for a
grand achievement has been thrown away. In
short, the whole thing is a failure without the
explanatory clause " we stuck till tbe last mo
ment, and did what we could." They had food
and all manner of stores for two years more, and
should, in myjodgmeDt, have slaid there until
those stores were eaten np.
In tbe Arctic it is generally down to 29 de
grees, bat even there it does not freeze unless
the air is entirely culm, for water in motion does
not freeze 1 have seen waves rolling at ou -below
r,ero, without a particle of ice in sight.
Tho next day vzhen the air fell to calm, the
whole sea was covered wilh a crystal mantle.
The Arctic Ocean is over 2000 miles in diameter
and if any one will once get over the land-cling-ing
ice belt and into the middle ol tbe Arctic
Sea, he might sail there to bis heart's content,
and I, for one, cannot see why this Knglish ex
pedition should so soon have abandoned the beld.
There are known uvenues lo this great mysteri
ous unknown water.
There is the oft-tried Behring Strait, there is
Baffin's Hay. there is the Spitzbergen Sea and
the Greenland .Sea. In Ibis lasl quarter the
Unrmans have found a new land. This land lies
midway between Spitzliergen and Nova Zembla
which land 1 predicted many years ago in an ad
dress before the Americarj Geographical Society.
It completes tbe almost continuous line of land
that invests the great Polar Basin.
In conclusion, allow me lo say that this great
English expedition from which so much was ex
pected looks very like a farce. The Pandora
was sent out to carry letters, which she left at
Littleton Island, near where I wintered in 1860
and '61, aod with the best intentions in the
world, discovered the great expedition, not where
it was expected to be, but in mid-ocean on its
way home. And oow, after all, the great object
has not been attained. The scientific world and
tbe curious of all civilized nations are gnevlousy
disappointed. For once they are convinced that
since tbe British Government bad expended its
best efforts and spent its means lo the extent of
$760,000, we abuuld have some positive know
ledge as to what Nature is busy with about tbe
ISorth Pole. I. L Hayes, in N. Y. Herald.
Tbe Future Greatness of Constanti
nople Tue City Considered as to its Position.
Long before tbe time of Conslantine the grow
ing Roman Empire reqaired an imperial enter
nearer to its geographical centre than its old
capital on the liber: and certainly, if Con
slantine bad fixed his uew capital with the aid
of modern science and art, he could not possibly
have chosen a eile which would prove so natural
a political center aa the one be actually selected.
Compare it to-day. considered as tbe capital of
a great empire, with Rome, or with any European
capital. There is not one of them all that can
sustain tbe comparison for a moment. Constan
tinople sits like a queen on tbe one great high
way between Karope and Asia. Her site is easy
of defense. She has a magnificent harbor. She
is facile mistress of the sea nn either Bide, by
means of tbe straits of tbe Bospborus and the
Hellespont. What is the site of London, or
Paris, or Berlin, or Vienna, or St. Petersburg,
in tbe comparison f No wonder tbe Czar has long
looked with envious eyes toward tbe Golden
Horn lo tbe capital city of the Greek Cburch
and tbe Greek empire. No wonder that the
wbole ' Eastern question" has long hinged on
what is to be done with Constantinople and tbe
highway wbicb it controls. Europe cares little
about tbe outlying possessions of the Sultan ;
but it is a vital question with every chief Euro
pean Stale who should bold tbe key city of all
Let Russia, with her already enormous posses
sions in Europe aod Asia, hold Constantinople
as her southern capital, and she will not be long
in stowing Europe who is mistreu of tbe whole
While the Ottoman Empire was still at the
higbt of ber power, while tbe glory of her arms
made all Southern Europe tremble, this fear and
dread was because abe held ber seat at Con
stantinople, and thus sat mistress of the "two
teas and the two sands."
Bat later, when the ancient prowess of tbe
Moslems gate way to Bupineness-when tbe
Turk, who was a strong man in bis ancient home,
became effeminate in these sunnier climes, the
fear grew to be, not lest the Turk should en
croach upon Europe ; the dread was not beet ate
be held bis seat in Europe ; bat there is disqaiet
and anxiety lest he be unable to hold the posi
tion he has conquered ; lest be become a prey to
the teeth of tbe huge Russian bear. And this
is no idle fear, for given any strong and intelli
gent European Government seated here aod
she rales the world.
Viewed commercially, tbe site of Constanti
nople is scarcely less perfect. Even before tbe
Christian era her commerce was very consider
able. PuriDg the days ol the great Roman Em
perors ber commercial prosperity was unrivaled.
Under tbe Sultans, Asia Minor. Syria, Arabia,
and even India, as well as Southern Europe,
have fed h?r commerce. And to-day, while her
waters are always while with sails and her har
bor lined on every side with tbe smaller vessels
of commerce, the capacious harbor itself is filled
with steamers bearing every European flag,
which come and go almost every hour of every
day, bringing the products of European industry,
and carrying grain, wool, mohair, fruits, and
various products of Turkish manufacture to
It may be said that the commerce of several
European cities and of more than one American
cily is greater than thai of Constantinople. Bat
it must be remembered and bere is a long list
of counts most important of all to come into
our reckoning thai Turkey is without roads;
tbat the Turks themselves bare not the least
commercial enterprise ; that tbe commerce and
trade ol Turkey ure nearly all ir. the hands of
foreigners and of her own Christian population ;
and we cud see reason why Constantinople is
ucloaily behind many Western ciites naturally
far less favored than herself. Turkey has almost
unrivaled resources, which still remain but very
partially developed to commerce. Give ber a
strong, wise, liberal Government, a Government
which shall exist and be administered in tbe in
terest of ibe people, honestly and economically ;
gi"e ber roads which shall facilitate the bringing
of her produce of every sort to Ibe sea ; encourage
ber agriculture, work her mioes, develop her
manufdctuies, and there would not be a city in
Ibe world where commerce would embrace so
many articles und keep alive a trade so vast and
Look at any map of the Eastern continent,
and it will be seen that Ibe natural commercial
center not only of almost all Turkey, but of
Persia and of a vast region bordering on the
Caspian Sea, also is Constantinople.
But with matchless commercial facilities and
large undeveloped resources, Turkey has been,
till this day, so wofully misgoverned ; her re
sources, instead of being developed, have been so
reinorsely drained ; her rulers, instead of living
aud governing for the people, have so uniformly
grown fat on their hard earned gains ; the cost
aud expeuses of imperial palaces, haiems, iroo
CaacU, etc., have been so enormous, even while
Ibe people in some ol ibe finest and not distant
provinces have been actually dying of starvation
thai in place of assuming the commercial posi
lion wbicb rightly belong to her, Constantinople
is, as regards her Moslem population, like Rome
in Ibe later years of ber decaying empire the
center of an empire in which are conspicuous
effeminacy and luxury on thu one hand, and mis
ery, degiadation and despair on tbe other. The
heart beats fast with a fevered heal, the extreme
ties are cold or paralyzed, and ibe Government
iUvll seems on the very eve of bankruptcy. 01
Constantinople as a commercial center, one sadly
thinks " what might huve beun."
But ber commercial possibilities still remain,
and she may have a future as brilliant in the
iwenlielh century as her matchless situation aud
natural fitness deserve. Should God's Provi
dence grant to Turkey a worthy Government, the
commercial prosperity of Constantinople will de
velop as naturally as her golden waters flow on
to the sea. 'The Guluxy for December.
The Interfebem-r of the German Consul with
the Government of Samoa. Thr Taimca
and Faifci.e Appeal to the United States
for Protection. Efforts of the New
American CoxaCL, Hon. G. W. Griffin, to
Apia (Island of Upola). October 29th. 1876.
uy Ibe Ada .May, your correspond. ml nnds the
first opportunity lie has had for b long time lo
send a letter to the United States. In oar little
capital the English and Germans have been do
iag everything in their power to overthrow the
Samoan Government. Tbey would have accom
plished their purpose lonir aeo. but the Samouns
beld oat firmly : besides, they expected much
from the new Consul, the Hon. G. W. Gnfiin.
Mr. Griffin arrived here on the 28th September.
He was well received by tbe Samoans. 'They
inviled him to their House of Government at
Mnliuu Point. He accepted their invitation. A
number of the citizens of the United Slulos were
present ut tbe meeting. Many had supposed
that the Consul had brought with him encourag
ing news from the United Stales, but, to the
surprise of every one, he told tbe Chiefs and
Governors of Samoa that ho hud beet) instructed
by tho Department of Stale nol to interfere in
any way with the nll.iirs of the Government of
Samoa ; that his duties were strictly limited by
law. He assured them, however, of the great
interest tbe President of the United Slates took
in the prosperity and bappiuess of the people of
'The epeaker of the Taimua and Faipule said
that he regretted very much that the enemies of
the Samoan Government had been doing their
utmost to disturb the peaceful relations of their
country. That the English had been trying lo
rule them with an iron hand ; that ihe United
States was the only great nation that did not in
terfere with them and impose heavy fines upon
them. He saio tbat if the Samoans were left to
themselves that they could regulate their own
affairs in their own nay : tbat every one that re
sided in the islands could enjoy the blessings of
a good government, anil that the government of
the people of Samoa was for peace ; tbat they
abhorred war and would do all tbat they could
to promote peaceful relations with other coun
tries. The United States Consul look leave of
the Taimua and Fuipule by expressing the hope
that tbeir country would soon enjoy all the bless
ings tbat could be bestowed upon it by a benig
nant Providence. He thanked ihem very kindly
for the warm and enthusiastic reception that
tbey had given him.
Tbe Taimua and Fnipale had, the day previous
to the visit of Ihe U. S. Consul, been advised by
the English and German Consuls to haul down
their flag, bat tbey positively refused lo do so.
They told tbe two Consuls that it was the flag
of tbeir country : that all tbe people of Samoa
loved and honored it ; thai it had been accepted
by all the foreign Consuls residing in the islands
and by tbe Missionaries; that it had been
saluted by the French and American men-of-war,
and that tbe entire nation would staod by
it to the last.
A few days elapsed, and the German man-of-war
Hertha arrived. The Taimua and Faipole
went on board to see the caplain. but he told
them that he had been instructed by '.he German
Consul not to nalale their Sag. 'Tbe Taimua and
the Fuipule s-tid that they regretted bis course,
and hoped that when he came to be further en
lightened about tbe country he would salute
A week after this the German Consul wrote a
letter to the United States Consul, asking him
to co-operate with him and the Captain of tbe
Hertha aod tbe English Consul in calling a
meeting for the purpose of establishing an inde
pendent government in Samoa. Tbe United
Slates Consul replied tbat be could not take
part in any such meeting ; tbat be would bold
himself aloof from all tbe different factions on the
Island and would not interfere in any way. 1'be
German Consul then addressed a letter to tbe
Taimua aod Faipule telling them tbat tbey must
obey certain law ; that they mast not bold any
meeting between Valili and Mulinu Point ; that
they matt not make any mora arrests, tbat they
should release all prisoners, and that tbey ahoald
keep themselves free from interfering wilh tree
speech and not carry aoy fire-arms. Tbe Taimua
and Faipole were then told the German man-of-war
would assist the Consul in carrying oat these
rules. Tbe Samoans have thus far remained firm
and will no doobt resist the wanton and uncalled
for interference with every meant at tbeir com
mand. ASKING TBI PROTECTION OF THE UNITED STATER.
Your correspondent has just beard tbat tbe
Taimua aod Faipole hare addressed a letter to
tbe President of the United States asking for
protection. They tell tbe President tbat they
have a good government and are strong through
out all Samoa, bat that they are weak compared
to the great nations. We understand tbat the
lettsr has gone rorward by way of Auckland, and
if it is not intercepted it may reach tbe President
This letter, if made public, would help tbe friends
of liberty in America to understand tbe nature
of the difficulties here.
There are two parlies in Samoa ; one favors
the dethroned King. Malietoa the other favors
tbe Taimua aod Faipole. The party io faor of
Malietoa it a very small one, and if it were not
supported by the' Society of London Missionaries
it woold nol amount to anything at all. Tbe
Taimua aod Faipule are strong iu every sense of
the word. More than two-thirds of the entire
people of Saoioa are with Ihe present Govern
ment. It has made good laws. It is capable of
carrying the Islands lo a brilliant and prosperous
fulore. It is and has been especially friendly to
the United Slates. It la desiroas of receiving
recognition from that Government. Tbe com
merce between the two countries would increase
from year to year if the selfish ends of the Eng
lish and Germans upon the Islands could be
checked. Tbe Eoglisb instigated Mr. Foster,
tbe late United States Consul, to arrest Colonel
Sleinberger, the Premier of Ihe Samoan Govern
ment. Tbey also advised Mr. Foster to seize
the schooner Peerless. We have bad no intima
tion of tbe United Stalea condemning these out
rages, any further than the tiinple declaration
tbat tbey are unlawful.
'The Germans here wish to monopolize all the
trade of tbe islands. They have been able to buy
nearly all ihe products ol Samoa upon tbeir own
terms, and they do not want a good Government
here. Every effort has heoo mode by them to
keep people of the United Slates from under
standing fully the coudition ol affairs iu Samoa.
We will awaii with great anxiety the news
from the United Ststes. The Americans here
cannot believe that a great nation like the United
Stales will allow the lives aud property of its
citizens to be endangered by tbe all-absorbing
und grasping bands of German and English ty
rants. 'The steamer will sail for San Francisco this
evening, and with her I will send yoo Ibis com
munication. 'The greatest excitement exist.
Interview with Chamberlain.
Manly Worst, from the
New Yore, Dec. 25. 'The Times' correspon
dent telegraphs from Columbia to-day : In ao
interview to day. Governor Chamberlain asserted
ibal tbe report of a compromise between the De
mocrats and Republicans was without founda
tion, so far as be is concerned. He said there is
uo room for compromise here, any more lhao
there is between Tilden and Hayes. There
might be a surrender, bat no compromise. The
Governor said : " I have no purpose io holding
my present position except 10 prevent tbe suc
cess of a great crime, namely, tbe success of the
Democratic party bere, conducted on tbe plan of
brule force. I despise ibe man who would nol
figbl for such a cause, und I have much more ro
spect for Gray aod Huller than I have for the
Republicans who want to purchase peace by con
senting lo recognize as valid the apparent re
salts of the late compaiga. It is precisely like
ihe conduct of the Union saers from 1850 lo
I860. They were ready always lo sacrifice for
tbe Union the very things the Union wot formed
lo secure, namely, liberty, justice, and good go
vernment. Just see, now, we hear a great deal
about tbe sacred forms of law. but very little
about the sacred substance of justice. I do nol
intend to break the law or overstep it, but I do
intend to exhaust all lawful remedies and de
fenses before 1 yield, and if I have to choose be
tween thu letter and spirit of the law, I shall
choose the spirit." 'The Governor was asked if
be would accept tbe United Stales Senatorship
if a compromise could be effected. He answered
that the proposition was absurd. In the first
plac there was oo such place lo bargain away
Mr. I 'or bin was duly elected, and no one else
could be elected until a vacancy arose ; secondly,
if there was such a vacancy, he woald not be a
candidate for it under any circumstances. " Fin
ally," said the Governor, " I wunt it understood
that I will accept uo office, great or small, as the
result of yielding my present position. I shall
bo Governor or nothing, and it is an insult to
me to suggest that I should take any office at the
price, as the reward, as the result of giving up
this contest. I am not trading on the position,
nor shall I allow others lo trade for me."
