His Majcstv'n liirthiiay vras celebrated on
FriJar last with even more than usual spirit.
There was a general suspension of business
thronghont the city, the closing of stores of
all kinds, both wholesale and retail, being almost
universal. The day was ushered in by
the firing of a royal salute from the battery on
Punchlwwl, which was repeated at noon and
at 6 o'clock p. in. Tl rcfi.tia nliraclei! to
the water front a large and enthusiastic crowd,
who in the intervals of waiting were entertained
by music from the br.nd, which was
stationed under cover on the steamer wharf.
The day was fine, the races well contested,
and the whole afTiir a success. On onr third
page will bo found a list of the winning boats
:n tlio different races, together with the names
of the persons by whom were entered.
It will lie eccn by reference to our third
page that " The Hawaiian Telegraph Company"
is now fully organized, and that telegraphic
communication between the principal
points on the island of Maui will soon be an
accomplished fact. ATe expect at no distant
day to see Oaliu, Maui and Hawaii, all connected
by telegraphic cables.
The last Saturday contained
rather a nasty communication on the subject
of " sores." Probably our neighbor regards
this as a nice kind of family reading, otherwise,
of course, he would not have published
it. Wo have had considerable experience in
such matters, and offer it, as our opinion, that
the author of the article in question is himself
suSering from the worst kind of a sore,
namely, " a snre Ji'ad."
It will be remembered that in our last issno
we invited anyone who had anything definite
to propose in the way of amendment to our
present Sunday law, to avail themselves of
the columns of the Gizdti for that purpose.
In response to this invitation we have received
only one communication, which will be
found on our third page. Although we do
not agree with our correspondent as to the
proper mode of keeping Sunday, we print his
letter with pleasure. We are especially glad
to notice that " E. Pluribus Unum " neither
intentionally misrepresents facts nor slanders
oilier people. We commend his example in
this regard to some others who have lately
appeared in print on the same subject.
The Adreriiser says in its last issue : " The
' hybrid of the Gaz-Jie which did " howl" at
" us, for suggesting to look for some Maori
" laborers with their wives and children, from
" Xcw Zealand, where they are very likely to
" bo got, would no doubt "bark like mad" at
a proposal to seek emigrants from the realm
" of the Mikado " The Adetrtistr has a very
vivid imagination. So fr from "howling"
or even " barking" at such a suggestion, we
consider the Japanese a very desirable class
of emigrants, and would be glad if men, women
and children of that nationality could be
induced to come here in cunsiucrable numbers.
The few who have been liere have given
great satisfaction. We have conversed with
considerable numbers of our people who have
had experience iu employing them, and their
testimony is almost unanimous in their favor.
But though we are favorable to Japanese emigration
we are opposed to wasting time and
money on visionary and impracticable schemes,
and we are satisfied that, for the present, it is
useless "to teek for emigrants from the realm
of the Mikado." The present policy of the
Japanese Government is decidedly opposed to
the emigration of their people, and we see no
means at present of overcoming the difficulty.
For this reason we have not felt called upon
to advocate Japanese immigration, or urge
upon our government the making of any attempt
to obtain population from that quarter.
Should there be at any time any indications
of a change in the policy of the Mikado's
government in this respect, we trust our authorities
will not fail to take immediate steps
to avail themselves of this, in our opinion,
very desirable source of population.

Oar Sunday LAVTst.
Recent occurrences, well known to nearly
or quite all of our readers, having brought the
subject of Sunday observances and Sunday
laws into unusual prominence, we feel it to be
our duty as public journalists, to lay before
our readers such facts and suggestions on the
subject, as seem to us pertinent and called for.
In the first place we will remark that the
general tone of the discussion, ifsuchitcan
bo called, which one meets with in public
places, on the streets, and among chance
gatherings of people, is by no means creditable
to either the intelligence or the candor of
the parties indulging therein. Most of this
talk it can hardly Iks called anything more
than that seems to proceed from those who
are not only opposed to the present Sunday
law, but, judging from their remarks, to any
Sunday law whatever, and it is characterized
in a majority of instances by an absence of
argument, a contempt for facts and a general
tone of bitterness toward those who differ
from them, which shows very conclusively
that bigotry, narrow-mindedness, and lack of
charity are by no means peculiar to
Even admitting th.it the present law
is imperfect and in need of amendment, the
4cause of public morals and sound legislation
is not to be promoted by general abuse nf
churches and those who attend them, or by
ignoring the fact that other countries which
are not and never have been under the control,
of "Missionaries," have laws on the same;
subject quite aa strict, if not stricter, than
onr own. Nor will the opponent! of Sunday
Legislation gain any advantage for their cause
or at all commend it to the favor of fair minded
people, by pretending to quote from the
statute book of Connecticut, laws which never
had any existence, and then charging tliat
these preposterous und purely imaginary laws
fairly represent the spirit and purposes of the
religious portion of our own community. It
is true that the proper mode of observing and
keeping the first day of the wet k, commonly
called Sunday, is a matter coticjrning which
not only many honest and well-meaning, but
even somu decidedly religious persons do
honestly differ. The strictest views are undoubtedly
those held by the leading denominations
of Protestants in Great Britain and
the United States. The German Lutheran,
though be may be orthodox in theology and
upright and regular in life, sees no particular
harm iu devoting a portion of his Sunday to
amusements and recreations which the Scotch
Presbyterian, for instance, would consider
highly improper and out of place; while in
Spain, Italy, and other countries where the
Church of Romo holds sway, the religious
ideas and feelings of the people find expression
in the keeping of feasts, fasts and saint's days,
in lenten observances and the abstaining from
meat on Fridays, rather than in any especially
strict keeping of Sunday. Yet all these people
consider themselves good Christians, and
so long as their general spirit and conduct is
not incompatible with that profession, we
have uo right to deny their claim to be so
considered. It should be understood and recognized
that no man's right to be regarded
as either a good citizen or a consistent Christian,
is to be either admitted or denied, merely
because of his holding opinions a little more
or less strict as to what is allowable and proper
on the first day of the week.
It is nevertheless true that all these various
denominations of Christians, however they
may differ in matters of detail on this subject,
are fully agreed that the Christian Sabbath is
an institution of Divine origin, that it is to be
regarded primarily and essentially as a religious
festival, and furthermore that it is
within the legitimate province of the civil
law, to recognize the day and provide for its
due and orderly observance. Personally, we
incline rather to the stricter ideas and opinions
of the American and English Protestants, and
are very firm in our own conviction that both
religion and morals find their best growth and
development in those countries where such
ideas are generally accepted and acted upon.
But we ha c no desire to force our ideas on
others or to make our individual opinions a
rule for other people's conduct.
In such matters let each one be fully persuaded
in his own mind, and let him hold his
opinions with conscience toward God and
charity toward his fellow men. It should be
remembered, that in order to arrive at a satisfactory
settlement of any public question, it
is absolutely necessary that honest differences
of opinion should be recognized and respected,
but this, we are sorry to 6ay, is just what
most opponents of Sunday legislation seem
quite incapable of doing. Honest difference
of opinion aud a desire to arrive at the truth
are certainlr not evinced by people who indulge
in ill-natured sneers at those who differ
with them, and who habitually denounce as
either bigots or hypocrites, all who happen to
hold or profess stricter ideas and opinions
than their own.
But the phase of the Sunday question which
is exciting the most interest among us at the
present time, has reference not so much to
theoretical ideas concerning the mode of observing
the day, but rather to the proper relations
thereto of the civil law.
Our views on this much vexed question may
be formulated as follows :
First It is not within the power of human
law, except indirectly and to a very limited
extent, to make meu either moral or religions ;
and it is outside of the legitimate province cf
law to undertake, directly, anything of the
It is within the power or law, to
make men, to a considerable extent at least,
orderly, peaceable and decent, and to compel
them to respect not only ilie persons and property
of others but even their comfort,
and feelings. A reasonable conformity
to external morality and propriety is
something which the law not only can secure,
but at which it ought at all times to aim.
Third. Among the matters ol order, propriety
and external morals of which, the constitutional
law making power may properly
take cognizance, and for the enforcement of
it may provide by the imposition of
suitable penalties, is the orderly observance
as a distinctively religious holiday, of the
first day of the week, commonly called Sunday.
Fourth. Whenever the great preponderating
majority of any community are agreed in
recognizing the Christian Sabbath as an institution
of Divine origin, they have a perfect
right to embody that belief in their legislation,
by declaring the day a legal holiday acd
forbidding thereon such ordinary secular
business and amusements as would interfere
with the due and orderly observance of the
day in accordance with the conscientious con
victions of that majority. In this matter, as
in many others within the sphere of legislation,
not only the convenience and pleasure,
but even the opinions of the minority, however
honest and conscientious, muBt, to Bomo extent
give way to the views of the majority.
This rule is perfectly familiar to those who
have taken the trouble to investigate this
question, and is too well established to need
either argument or illustration. It is fully
recognized in the laws of England and the
various States of the American Union, and is
sustained by an almost unbroken lips of decisions
from nearly all the Courts which have
had occasion to pass upon the question.
Several instances in illustration of this fact
may be found in the letter of our correspondent
in the last number but one of the
Gazette, and were it required the list might
be almost indefinitely extended.
Fifth. Tnis right of the majority to legislate
for the observance of Sunday and to say
what shall and what shall not be lawful on
that day, ought not to be exercised in a harsh
or arbitrary spirit, or without a duo and reasonable
regard for the interests aud feelings
of the minority. The law should, in our
opinion, confine itself mostly if not entirely to
public acts and doings, and meddle as little as
possible with private and domestic affairs.
Laws which contemplate or allow an impertinent
and inquisitional prying into peoples'
houses and families, are always unpopular
and generally useless.
Sixth. Sunday laws should "be definite and
explicit in their prolusions, Tree from ambiguity,
aud affording the least possible chance
for honest differences of opinion as to their
inteu ion and application.
Having laid down what we consider sound
general principles in this matter, wo will, in
our next, proceed to inquire how far the Sunday
laws of this Kingdom conform thereto,
and what alterations, if any, would be desirable

to our social circles, aud to tboe intimate relations
of oeigbbor and frieud, which when sympathetic
and tree, tend to maKe life cheerful, tinght and
Gentlemen The pTeteniocaEii)n. as well as the
toast which I shall shortly have the honor to propose,
makes it proper tost I should advert to the
cuuotry which His Excellency has come hither to
represent, and which lu tbe course of event las
become our nearest neighbor. The Was, in
the not far distant past, w ben tbe United States waa
as far from us, commercially speaking, at England,
or France, or Germs uy when the little ciimmercn
we had with all these countries found Its way to or
from us by thu long and tedious route via Cape
Hunt; when tbe Hawaiian Islands, socially and
commercially, were but as specks on tbe broad expanse
of tbe distant Pacific Ocean. Tbese Islands,
to tbe view of ilie.incrclaDt and tbe citizen of St
Bedford, were bnl a group to be reached alter lung
aud patient voyaging, profitable only as consum
ing a small amount ol gooas. nseini as a sioppuig
ptace for crnising ships, or Interesting as affording
au illustration of the triumph aud cooqueriug power
Buttbenurcb of events have wonderfullj changed
aU this. He would have been a bold prophet who,
thirty years agi, should have ventured to predict
what has actually came to pass who should have
moved Ibe Uuited States from Ibe Atlantic to the
Pacific board, and haversettlut on tbe tame s large,
thrifty sud rigorous population. Xcl this miracle
has born accomoliabeia. When tbe marvellous an
nouncement Was made to the people uf Ihe Eastern
United States that ou Ibe Pacific Stupes of tbe
Sierras gold might be bad for be picking of it up
from the soil, a mighty ware of emigration flowed
acruss tbe Isthmus of Panama rushed in a steady
torrent across the plains and tue Boekr Mountains
welled cp from South aud North and spread out
upon the plains, bills sud valleys of Calif orals, tintll
as it were in a Cay, villages, Uiwes and cities sprang
into existence; populous and well organized states
were formed on xiit which, for centuries, bad hardly
felt Ihe fool of human beluga, and in an incredibly
sno4t time we viewed tbe fair form uf American
Liberty aud American institutions seated on tbe
summit ol tbe Sierras, ber feet lived by tbe blue
waters of the Pacific, aud her eyes turned to Uie
people of tbe Occident.
By this march westward Ibe United States moved
4Q9J miles nearer Hawaii commercially, more than
ICO days ueirer and streiched cut jo osa helping
band, opening tor nil new vista of commercial enterprise
wi the profitable exchange ot products.
This march has placed at ourcummaud an araihtble
market: It hat given to us mora than a million of
people as consumers of tbe tropical products nf onr
soil, and tbe cominercltl products nf Hawaii have
become Intimately connected with the products of
the Pacific States.
I reoiember years sro that Gen. Miller, the then
British Consul General, was accustomed to speak
of the commerce of Hawaii as bounds: in expansion,
to Honolulu becoming the entrepot for British
and Amerlcau ijikhIs, which, finding their way luto
the Pacific via Cae Horn, should from this purl be
distributed to the Inhabitants of the Spanish and
Nurlliwcst Coasi. Tills wa not a lame prospect,
hut what do we sec now Honolulu uut an
merely ul a cMy trade, but the lumsc
ul tUeNnrtli Pscltlc alieady Hie way port of a line
t.r steamships cumiec!ln; Ssn Francisco with Ibe
large ami prosperous Colonics of Great liiiuln
Auustralia, and I believe to become the way port
of tucrelcsiu lines cruSMu to China, nod dually
or that commerce which shall pass lliruush a Darien
Thus thu future shows an eiilin:lns and varying
of the outlets for nur exports. And so also I believe
lltst Ihe not far distant future Hill see us connected
by cabli. with the commercial nations to the
East tnd the West of us. The proprietors uf these
cable cnterprites are aptin at nmk upon I lair
and as letters but lately rcccivid by the
Guernmcnt Indicate, there enterprises are about to
be pushed Inrward vigorously.
And so Hawaii has progressed, having brighter
prospects and an assured commercial luture; aud I
may say, without offence Iu any, that largely this
Improvement is due to Ihe vicinage of the United
States and herlriendly regard fur Hawaii.
Gentlemen I now ak you to Join mc In Ibe
